Private Dances - Next Wave Festival

James Welsby and Amy Macpherson have been performing new Phantom Limbs work, Theodore and the Winehouse, in 'Private Dances' which is a keynote project for Next Wave Art Festival in Melbourne. The concept of Theodore and the Winehouse is the deconstruction of entertainment; mascot costumes are stripped part way through a dance to reveal the identities of the people underneath. Private Dances offers an audience an indoor campground complete with a bar and hor d'oeuvres flanked by sixteen tents, each hosting either a dance film or a short dance performance ranging from contemporary dance, classical Indian, hip hop, contortion, to Korean. Audience members are lead in by a guide one or two at a time into each tent to encounter these intimate, sometimes confronting performances. Performers would average 22 performances an evening!
