During the Covid-19 lockdown, 20 women over 65 from Western Sydney met once a week to dance and make a short ZOOM film together. FORM Dance Projects and Creative Caring embarked on this screen dance project over 10 weeks. They met weekly every Tuesday, from their homes – switching on Zoom to dance together and record their moves under the direction of independent dance artist and filmmaker, Diane Busuttil. Joined by the Penrith-based seniors dance group ‘Agile not Fragile,’ FORM’s Feisty Femmes joyfully opened themselves to “Zoom choreography,” experimenting with colour and simple moves.

Through astute editing of class recordings, the creative manipulation of Zoom split screens, Busuttil and Abigail Portman have not only created a moving testimony to the lockdown experienced by our seniors during Covid-19, but demonstrated how essential creativity has been to keep us together.
