Dance Territories is Dancehouse’s biennial program presented in association with Melbourne Festival. The innovative premise of Dance Territories, now in its third edition, is to pair an independent Australian with an international artist in a double-bill, creating a multi-disciplinary, cross-cultural dialogue in relation to a shared theme.
This year, alumna Sarah-Jane Norman (2012, 2014) presents The River’s Children and Take this for it is my body alongside French dancer Nacera Belaza’s The Shout. In The River’s Children and Take this for it is my body, Sarah-Jane Norman collapses the personal into the political, exploring the impact Australia’s brutal colonial history has had on their particular body – the body of the artist, their ‘performing’ body, in front of the spectator’s ‘watching’ body.
