1/15 Ross Street
1/15 Ross Street is a site responsive dance duet set in your iconic Australian backyard. The piece explores two housewives´ intimate realms and plays with poetic surrealism in suburban mundanity.
The audience is immersed in a voyeuristic experience while relaxing in deckchairs. With a beer in hand, they witness a surprising female relationship amidst domestic rituals and chores. 1/15 Ross Street represents a typical Australian scenario in which two strangers live in proximity and isolation at the same time. As the work progresses, the initial annoyance of living next to a random neighbour transforms into these humans becoming the closest witnesses to each others lives and a support.
