Retreat – 8 December
At Home residency program
Supported by the Regional Centre for Culture
In residence 26/11 – 9/12
Performance 8 December, 5pm
Retreat (previously known as Phee Dance Video Works) is produced by new local collective, company On Foot.
The project reflects and responds to the familiar space of the Phee Broadway Theatre through the artistic forms of sound, physical movement and the digital image.
The residency process will develop unconventional ways of engaging with place, to create dance and sound improvisations. These improvisations will respond to the site of the Phee Broadway Theatre itself. The residency will culminate in a public showing of the video work accompanied by live excerpts of the original dance and sound (saxophone) score developed during the residency.
The community will be brought together to view the live performances which will ultimately expand on the possibilities of small scale dance/sound and video works that reflect a regional theatre building in an innovative way.
Company On Foot comprise of Georgia Snowball, Georgia Snowball, Leonie Van Eyke and Jenny Divers. Georgia has recently completed a PhD in site-specific performance studies at Federation University, Leonie is a Castlemaine based videographer, puppeteer, arts educator, animator and projectionist and Jenny is an integral part of the local live music scene in Castlemaine.
