Part of Ten Days on the Island 2017
Dance Interrogations plays between the formats of video installation and contemporary dance performance, featuring Screendance artist Dianne Reid and Melinda Smith, a dancer living with cerebral palsy. The two build upon their unique six-year collaboration in which they have developed strong performance models beyond the confines of commonly held disability stereotypes.
Through the lens of a stark and tender portrait of partnership, and ghosted by the presence of others on screen, Dance Interrogations is a duet between the gently insistent, fragile Smith and the fiercely wry Reid.
Dance Interrogations was the 2016 winner of The A.W.A.R.D. Show.
During the Salamanca Moves Festival in 2016 a panel of industry experts roamed festival performances, events and popups. They selected three works for a live grand final performance on the final Friday night of the festival.
After a discussion with the artists and the panel the audience then voted to select one work as the winner of The A.W.A.R.D. Show, which is now being presented at Ten Days on the Island in 2017.
