Cabin Fever

Cabin Fever

Cabin Fever is a site-specific dance and video performance originally set in a cabin in a caravan park, then reworked into a vintage caravan for small audiences of 8–10. Over its 30-minute duration, themes of isolation, mortality, and social disconnection are playfully teased out through a visceral engagement with the living, breathing body. This woman is in search of a community that she can touch—harking back to the ancient connections of ritual and risk and dancing up her ancestors—illuminated by the fluorescent hues of the mid 1970’s.

Expect to move and be moved by this woman contemplating escape. The performance involves dance improvisation, video projection, poetic text and physical theatre.

Created and performed by Dianne Reid. Cabin Fever premiered at the 2019 Adelaide Fringe where it won the Bank SA Weekly Award for Best Dance and received 5 star reviews. The work was re-developed for a caravan parked in an inner city carpark for the 2019 Melbourne Fringe. It was subsequently presented again at the 2020 Adelaide Fringe in a caravan in Henley Square, again winning a Weekly Award for Best Dance.
