OVERWORLD at Next Wave Festival

Overworld 4

Overworld 1

OVERWORLD happened in its full glory at the magnificient venue The Substation in May. We performed 8 shows in 10 days as part of Next Wave Festival 2014
It was definitely one of the craziest shows I have ever performed in but also one of the most rewarding. Three months later some of the moments that have stayed with me most strongly are:

The queues of ‘Earth signs’ lined up in front of me in anticipation for their individual ‘treatment’.

The nerves before hitting the first vocal note of the show.

The pre-show ritual of laying all items in their carefully constructed spatial arrangement.

The audible reactions of audience members in the section dedicated to a mash up of Youtube clips

OVERWORLD will be performed again in Melbourne at Dance Massive, March 2015!!!

Fantasy Light Yoga – Deep Soulful Sweats

To celebrate this year’s winter solstice Sarah Aiken and Rebecca Jensen organised a ‘dark yogic disco’. Facilitated by Rebecca, Sarah, Natalie Abbott and myself, we each led a group of people through an hour of yogic postures, chants and some good old interpretative dance disco moves. The groups were divided based on our star signs and corresponding elements: Air, Fire, Water and Earth. I was leading all the Earth-lings in the room and, what can I say, we rocked!
