Concept & Curation by Jessica Devereux & Kelly Beneforti.
An immersive installation of experimental dance films by Duane Preston.
One warehouse, thirteen short films, a roaming audience.
In the midst of 2020 lockdown, twelve NT artists made solo works sharing their idea of “home”.
Filmed in a day, these short intimate dance pieces extend beyond four walls to encapsulate the uniqueness of tropical living.
Featuring ‘Homebodies’: Alex Jordan, Bryn Wackett, CJ Fraser Bell, Jenelle Saunders, Jessica Devereux, Kelly Beneforti, Kristi Renfrey, Kyle Walmsley, Maari Gray, Ricky Borg, Sheila Rose, Venaska Cheliah. Installation design by Tim Newth and Duane Preston.
Tracks Dance Company is located in Darwin and produces original and contemporary dance works that celebrate an important part of Australian culture – the frontier of the Northern Territory. A multi-awarded centre of excellence, Tracks is a hub of expertise in community dance built on an extended history of trusted community collaboration. Tracks is an innovator, developing Australian dance that values and utilises a diversity of dance practice.
In 2020, Darwin local independent dance artists were required to work from home for a time. ‘Homebodies’ maintained the artists’ engagement through a collection of shared online workshops, resulting in solo works created and filmed within the artists’ home environments, with a secret future duet (unbeknown to the artists) embedded into the scores and instructions.
