Wyrd with grace by Alexandra Knox is a dance work also combining a fusion of video art and an original music score. This work first premiered at the Melbourne Fringe 2011, where Alexandra stated that she was successful with the turnout and outcome of the performance. For the 2012 production the choreography had changed significantly and Knox has had the the support of Adelaide based Tim Rodgers and the collaborative team Cy Gorman ( Video Artist) Rodney Bates (Lighting Design) David Browne (Costume Design) and Musical composers Daniela Lucchetti and Kwantum Physixs.
Wyrd with grace comes across as being a dreamer’s state of mind, to have the thought that becomes action (the evolution of dance), which comes across as a personal experience by Knox (herself an independent choreographer and dancer.) Alexandra delivers a solo work that is captivating and elegantly presented. The start and the end movements’ vocabulary were mainly on the ground, with the middle piece which was presented at the choreolab’s in theater season in 2011. Since Melbourne new ideas have evolved within the work, with the conception in the first and last sections.
Alexandra Knox is a beautiful lean dancer; her long legs make her presence on stage expand outwards encapturing the audience. The graphics that are displayed across her body create a stunning visual effect with the sensation of a Butoh (Japanese dance) setting. She moves across into her woven web, where the lighting effects seem to follow her on stage. Due to limitations of the lighting at the Holden Street Theatre, Rodney Bates has managed to pull something together that looks stunning.
An inspirational creative work, Alexandra is a beautiful dancer.
