Watch Her NOW

Watch Her NOW Aug 9, 2009

Review by Rosie Trump

Smart, clear and cool.  This describes choreographer Meg Wolfe’s Watch Her (Not Know It Now) which debuted at the New Original Works Festival at the REDCAT this weekend.  A solo, choreographed and performed by Wolfe, possesses a brilliant arc beginning and ending with Wolfe gazing over the stage, back to the audience while poised very close to the front row.

Bird-like and perched on top of her own legs, Wolfe choreographically crafts an illusion of ease.  The sound composition, by Aaron Drake, appears to pull Wolfe from one locale towards the next.  While she carries a composed, introverted gaze, Wolfe’s dancing distinctly expands and condenses over the course of the piece.

Watch Her (Not Know It Now) is superbly concise and ends leaving the viewer wanting it to last just a little bit longer, which is one of the best ways to leave them.
