As the festival was on for two weeks it was lovely to meet the festival crew and other volunteers night after night, comparing what we’d seen, what favourites we had (plenty of ‘oh no, I missed that one’ or ‘I MUST go and see that one tomorrow night’ could be overheard) and also to meet some of the dancers and choreographers themselves. Some of the shows had a pre- or after-show talk, which I was a huge fan of (and very grateful for) as I’m still in the process of educating myself more about dance in its many forms. Having listened to Melbourne choreographer Lucy Guerin, for instance, explain about the background to her piece ‘Structure and Sadness’ the starting point for which was the collapse of a large bridge in Melbourne in the 70s, made me even more interested in certain details of the stunning performance.
