Aireys Dance Choir

Aireys Dance Choir
Rebekah Rehearsed her show in Aireys.

Beginning with some beautiful duets. I navigated the duets with the moving camera.

The space opened up the performance. I imagined that the expanded energy of this space might give the work more volume in the smaller Cecil st next week. I thought of times distance is explored in conversations to see how they might change body language, volume and dialogue.

Rebekah Rehearsal

Rebekah Rehearsal


Rebekah ran such a beautiful rehearsal with an engaging warm up from Dale. Rebekah’s direction was clear and assured. She gave her words and thoughts space to be contemplated. She gave assurance to her cast by backing her directions with a calm and present demeanour. It showed in the cast who relished her direction and explored what she was asking with boldness, bravery and full heartedness.

One of the great strengths of Rebekah’s work is how dedicated the actors become under her guidance. Watching how completely they commit to the performance is beautiful.

The Other Shore

The Other Shore





A dance was performed as part of Rebekhas show opening.  This opened up a dialogue of movement and emotion with the works. I felt it gave the audience permission to think and feel more in response to the works. The dancers were inviting the audience to imagine how a work may speak to the heart, body and mind. 
Rebekhas choreographic direction: 

Wind: Ask the wind what it has to say to you.
Heat: Ask the heat what it has to say to you.
Cold: What does the cold say to you?
Water: What does the water say to you?
Air: What does the air say to you?
