Alice Dixon, William McBride and Caroline Meaden (Alice Will Caroline) have been working together in Melbourne/Naarm since 2013. They have made and performed eight original works of dance and theatre, carving out a distinctive aesthetic and formal contribution to the local dance ecology. Blending forms and references to create highly local and specific “Gesamtkunstwerks”, they wilfully embrace and subvert “genre”, and slyly “perform performance”, allowing intuitive and subconscious logics to impose their desires on the process.
Alice Will Caroline have presented work in festivals and presenting houses including The Keir Choreographic Award, Dance Massive, Next Wave, FOLA, Dancehouse, Carriageworks, the Substation, Temperance Hall, Arts House, Abbotsford Convent and NGV. Their work has been supported through residencies at Lucy Guerin Inc, Chunky Move, Dancehouse, Vitalstatistix, Ian Potter Gallery and Boyd Studio (City of Melbourne) among others. They have been funded by the Australia Council, Creative Victoria, Creative Partnerships Australia and Besen Family Foundation, and received numerous awards and nominations, including the 2019 Green Room Award for Best Ensemble Performance (Dance), as well as the Chloe Munro Fellowship, in association with Lucy Guerin Inc.
