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 and present, and acknowledge that sovereignty was never ceded.

Action! The present is about to give way to an anticipated future. A picture is beginning to emerge, as difficult to predict as it is terrifying to ponder. Everywhere there is noise. Temporalities intersect and form a stalemate. Obsolete objects fall out of time and pairings pull further apart. Delay and distance entangle between here and the horizon. We look down on it all from above, forgetting which memories we have experienced with our body in time and space, and what we have seen on the screen.

Rebecca Jensen grew up in Aotearoa and moved to Naarm to study dance at the Victorian College of the Arts in 2007. She creates performance for gallery spaces, theatres and site-specific contexts alongside teaching dance and performing for others, notably dancing with choreographer Jo Lloyd since 2010. In 2012 she formed the ongoing participatory project Deep Soulful Sweats with collaborator Sarah Aiken, creating immersive theatre works and inclusive dance events. Jensen was a 2015 DanceWEB scholar at Impulstanz Vienna and has spent time working in Aotearoa, Korea, Indonesia, Germany and Italy. She is continually inspired by the equally speculative and practical forces of dance practice.

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

Rebecca would like to thank Thomas Muratore.
