'Dee Smart’s subject is dancer, choreographer and director Meryl Tankard. After starting her career with the Australian Ballet, Tankard spent six years as a soloist with Tanztheater Wuppertal, the legendary company of German choreographer Pina Bausch. Returning to Australia in 1984, she began creating unforgettable works that crossed dance, theatre and visual art. More recently, she has focused on film and screen culture.' (
