Artist Dean Walsh, topless and looking up into the sky with his arms stretched behind him. His body is against a black background. The words "Context is Everything" is printed across his chest, and there is a pink triangle outline that surrounds his body.

Space Grant

Dean Walsh has a two-week space residency at The Drill Hall leading up to his presentation of Context Is Everything in March Dance.

Starting in 1990 with his first work, Homme Fatale, this “performed archive” functions as a fascinating tour guide of some of the more diverse and unorthodox dance and performance practices in Sydney/Australia and the venues and events that encouraged conceptual risk-taking, experimentation with new choreographic and performative forms, rattling the cages of the more traditional and conservative dance and theatre norms of the time.

Context is Everything will be presented at The Drill Hall on 12 & 13 March 2021, 7pm. 



Artists: Dean Walsh – Choreographer, Writer and Performer
Andrew Batt-Rawden – Composer and Technical Assistant / Consultant
Martin Fox – Video Compositions and Captures
