Testing & Celebrating the Social Animal by Jane Howard, RealTime issue #109 June 26 2012


My journey started by being taken across the Yarra on a rowboat by Dan Koop. The work asks the audience to give as much of themselves to the work as they hope to get out of it, and Koop plays wonderfully with the balance of pushing past barriers without causing discomfort. 

Continuing my journey to the stream and then onto the bridge, my relationship with each of the artists and with the river seemed to follow a logical growth— from the deeply personal conversation with Koop to learning about the river from Jamie Lewis, to a dialogue-less communication on the bridge powered through body language, headphones and handwritten notes.
