Growing up within a family of dancers Wendy graduated from the Australian Ballet School in 1974, was a dancer with the Monte Carlo Ballet, The Scottish Ballet, the Sydney Dance Company and an original member of Danceworks (Melbourne). Being among the first generation of Australian independent dance artists Wendy has worked with Australia's most influential new dance makers; studied and worked internationally and has extensive teaching experience with professional dance companies, independent artists and most tertiary arts institutions around Australia.

In this forum Wendy will speak about her life and performance practice. Wendy creates installed dance performance works within visual arts contexts. She has a longstanding collaborative partnership with media/sound artist Leigh Hobba and dance artist Trevor Patrick. Her practice is investigative, process focussed and improvisational in method and material. The presence of the body, absence and location are central themes within her work. Wendy will present aspects of her solo and collaborative work and talk about her current project - Geologies.
