Dancehouse presents ‘Small Details’
A new live performance directed by local choreographer Sandra Parker is coming to Melbourne’s Dancehouse on March 18-20.
Sandra Parker is the recipient of the Australia Council for the Arts Dance Board Fellowship and a Centenary Medal for Services to Australian Society and Dance. She has presented her work in Paris, Berlin, Portugal and New York previously, as well as undertaken various international residencies.
Her latest work, Small Details, was partially previewed at Dance Massive last year. According to Dancehouse, its upcoming presentation will use a series of “automated kinetic sculptures set against dense and intricate choreography.” At its climax, “where precision and fixity break”, it will focus all its attention on the “vulnerabilities, limitations and potentials of the body in an automated and technologically advanced world.”
Approximately one hour in length, it features a soundscape by David Franzke, sculptures by Rhian Hinkley, and lighting by Jenny Hector. Performers are Rebecca Jensen, Melissa Jones and Kasey Lack.

Another project that Sandra Parker is working on is Automaton, a local installation that will open at Sara Scout Presents in June.
