I admire Rebekah’s strength. In one day she finished school reports. We packed up the beach House. Drove to Melbourne and presented her dance show. It was well received and a success.

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.
