In 2007, on my 10th Anniversary of "quitting" dancing I had a dance research residency at Critical Path. My research questions was: "What's left? What is left in me, and what has left me?" The five days in the studio raised more questions, so I shared these with my dancing colleagues in Sydney, video-taping their responses.
In 2012 Critical Path gave us a curatorial residency to cut together the footage and create the Physical TV Company's production of a documentary & screendance called "...the dancer from the dance".
First public screening: 5pm Saturday 30 November at The Performance Space as part of the Director's Cuts series. (for tickets - http://bit.ly/18j4Mhy).
In this video Miranda Wheen responds to the question: "is dance who you are or what you do?"
