4 Rooms, 4 Diverse Experiences

Most people are sexual beings, with sexual thoughts, attitudes, feelings, desires, and romantic fantasies. Having a physical or intellectual disability doesn’t change your sexuality and your desire to express it. Yet, the subject of people with intellectual disability having romantic dreams and sexual desires is still taboo.

Private View invites audiences to become voyeurs; to observe people in their domestic spaces and discover their romantic dreams and hidden desires.

Haunting melodies from Carla Lippis are deeply intertwined within the work and serve as the heartbeat of each scene, underscoring the dancers’ stories and intensifying their emotional resonance.

Private View breaks down societal myths and misinformation and sets the viewer on a path to twist their preconceived attitudes around sexuality and disability. The production is an intimate exploration of unspoken stories and secret longing from Australia’s leading creator of dance theatre by dancers with and without disability.
