Phoebe Robinson has an established practice as a dancer and choreographer and more recently with digital video. Having presented live performance work in Australia and internationally since 2000, she is currently interested in applying choreographic strategies within digital filmmaking. Her work is driven by a deep interest in everyday movement. By detaching gesture from notions of individual expression, she is interested in how gestures circulate and alter within specific places and over time.
Phoebe has established a practice over 20 years, presenting works in dance venues, theatres and galleries. Notably, she was commissioned to present in Melbourne Now 2014 at the National Gallery of Victoria, and performed at the Heide Museum of Modern Art in Judith Walton’s Lehte I and Lehte II in 2014 – 2015. She has performed in works by choreographers, Sandra Parker, Lucy Guerin, Judith Walton, Rosalind Crisp, Frances D’Ath, Neil Adams and Kota Yamazaki. In 2011 she received support from Critical Path and the Ian Potter Cultural Trust to attend a semester at the Universität der Kunst Berlin in the MA Solo/Dance/Authorship (SODA), a practice-led Master degree. Currently she is completing a PhD in Choreography at the VCA, where she is also a sessional lecturer.
