Dancehouse stands on what always was and always will be Aboriginal land. We pay our respects to the traditional owners of this land, the Wurundjeri peoples of the Kulin Nation, to their elders past, present and emerging, and acknowledge that sovereignty was never ceded.

In Evaporative Body / Multiplying Body, Alan Schacher and WeiZen Ho inhabit shifting spaces through refracted and dissolving visual fields. Traversing flickering boundaries of tremulous bodily states, their arena is one of suspended belief, where pretense and manifestation collide. Fausto Brusamolino’s generative visuals and the sonic depths created by noise artist Hirofumi Uchino’s audioscapes invoke the improbable to manifest.

Alan Schacher is a performance artist and creator concerned with the body’s engagement with inhabited space, material form and the diasporic condition. He devises and enacts rituals for place and situation. Founder of Gravity Feed and Gravity Research Institute, his dance influences have included Russell Dumas, Katie Duck and Min Tanaka.

WeiZen Ho devises performances and participatory works that occupy spaces of uncertainty between performance, ritual and installation. Perceiving spirit possession as socially transformative and empowering, she employs accoutrements and imagery that locate and coalesce relationships between body, voice, sound and site. She was music director of TUFA music-visual ensemble.



The Keir Choreographic Award is a partnership between Dancehouse, The Keir Foundation and the Australia Council for the Arts, with presenting partner Carriageworks.

Evaporative Body / Multiplying Body is supported by the Centre for Projection Art.
