Context Is Everything is a 90-minute work that distills renowned independent dance artist, Dean Walsh’s, submission to the NSW State Library – for the Dancing Sydney: Mapping Movements, Performing Histories archival project. Starting in 1990 with his first work, Homme Fatale, this “performed archive” functions as a fascinating tour guide of some of the more diverse and unorthodox dance and performance practices in Sydney/Australia and the venues and events that encouraged conceptual risk-taking, experimentation with new choreographic and performative forms, rattling the cages of the more traditional and conservative dance and theatre norms of the time.
