Playing Audience by Deborah Hay
Concept: Deborah Hay
Adaptation: Stephanie McMann,Eleanor Sikorski, Flora Wellesley Wesley
Host at premiere: Irma von Platen
Playing Audience happens after the performance of Where Home Is. It is a conversation, hosted by Nora, which guides the audience through three different frames for watching dance. Hay's process of making choreography involves multiple ‘what if’ questions which the dancers use to fuel their dancing. Playing Audience is an opportunity for the audience to experience these questions, to change how they see, and to practice watching movement from alternative perspectives.
