Short & Sweet Dance Canberra (2010) - Soft Targets wins Outstanding Choreography Award

“I was considering my reaction to the Soft Targets section that involves extreme tension in the body and face. Well I think the audience's little giggles are actually their own bodies physical reaction to something that is quite powerful and physically threatening, in the sense that it totally threatens a person’s sense of bodily appropriateness. As they become aware of a sense of disturbance that they can't articulate they become confronted by the shock of their own laughing. So they are responding to both an external and internal invisible physical threat.” Vivienne Rogis
