ARTIST STATEMENT- JANE DAVIES Staged within the mysterious and compelling landscape of the Stirling Ranges, Koi Kyeunu-ruff to the Noongar people, “There Will Be No Dancing Here”, explores the desire and struggle for women to express their true nature. In the gloaming a radiant being’s natural eccentricity illuminates the twilight. Sexual violence, omnipresent casts a menacing shadow. Within the edging darkness a figure moves closer, armed with deadly intent, he mutters to himself – “There will be no dancing here”.
