William McBride (VIC)
William is a Melbourne-based performance maker working across mediums of dance, theatre, contemporary performance and live art. He works mostly collaboratively to devise work with other independent artists. His work foregrounds physicality, inventive writing, and slippage between overt and covert personae. Recurring themes include: the body, its hidden turbulences and potential for covert virtuosity; stuff and rubbish; sexuality and the information tide; aggrandising the small bits of modern lives. He graduated from the Victorian College of the Arts in 2013 with a Postgraduate Diploma in Performance Creation – Animateuring. His recent work with Alice Dixon and Caroline Meaden, This is What’s Happening, won Best Dance at the 2015 Melbourne Fringe.
