People's Choice Award for Wheel of Fortunes

Last year's amazing community dance  collaboration,  "Wheel of Fortunes" picked up the People's Choice Award at the Ausdance WA West Australian Dance Awards last week.

The project was the largest  and most complex that the RRAC has taken on to date and was part of the Ausdance WA Future Landings 2013 project coordinated by Annette Carmichael and also including community dance projects in Broome and Karratha.

Wheel of Fortunes involved writer Nicola le Breton, choreographer Aimee Smith  and Film Maker Amber Perryman working with people across the Shire of Ravensthorpe throughout the year in developing a large scale work that reflected the mining, agricultural, environmental and personal history of the region.  The  project culminated in two performances in the Jerdacuttup Wheatbin followed by a community dinner and celebration in the Jerdacuttup Hall.
