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.

100% unknown, 100% aerobic, 100% absurd. And delicious over a cup of tea.

Rosie and Jonathan met at Dancehouse in 2020. Jonathan loved how Rosie used her voice as a limb that could stretch across the room as she created percussive movement sequences; Rosie loved how Jonathan was present in the space with a smile, constantly engaging with focus on lingering gestures. Across four standalone events in 2024, Rosie and Jonathan share their improvisational practice in Perhaps…who knows.

Perhaps…who knows is an episodic non-linear narrative encompassing eight decades of the performers shared improvisational experience. Two infamous provocateurs enter their realm where mystery meets movement, and every joyful step tells an untold story.

Performers: Rosie Fayman & Jonathan Homsey
Improvisation Coach: Andrew Morrish

Episodes 3 and 4 are presented as part of Season 2 at Dancehouse.

Rosie Fayman was inspired to dance in the 1970s by a single creative movement class at ‘Mangala Studios’ in Carlton. Early 1980’s Rosie trained to teach the Alexander Technique in London, an intensive 3 year training that cultivates a refined inner body consciousness. Towards the end of the 1980s, in Melbourne, Rosie joined Al Wunder’s classes, which she participated in for decades, with a few years off, then returned to classes until Al retired. Since then, Rosie has consistently been a part of an improvising performance group, practising weekly and performing to audiences regularly. She performed solo, in duets and occasionally in group work. She has participated in “Dancehousing” in the Dancehouse Monday evening improvised performance group since its inception and has performed in public showings at Dancehouse on several occasions.

Jonathan Homsey is a choreographer and curator working from the position of a Queer Person of Colour based in Wurundjeri country. Originally an award-winning dancer for crews during the naughties in Southern California, he is humbled to be a community leader in so-called Australia for the past decade, galvanising people together to dance. From Footscray Community Arts to Melbourne Museum, Jonathan specialises in platforming Street and Queer dance forms to cultivate empowerment for sexually and ethnically diverse young people. He is the 2021 Green Room for Best Dance Production and is the 2022 Melbourne Fringe Festival’s Director Choice Winner. In 2023, he was awarded 4 stars for his work choreographing Guys and Dolls for Antipodes Theatre Company and his aquatic performance Shower Thots from The Age.
