The Changing Room

Australia, 1997 (MIFF 1997, Experimental)

Director: Alyson Bell

The sea, a field, a room. Memories, boundaries, observations, observers. A woman tries to make sense of her life whilst struggling against inner turmoil. Forces from within and without work upon her, propelling her forward into the clarity and calm of the outside.

Visually striking sets and interesting use of text make this a compelling piece of choreography.
