I Wish Her Well



Four women, a collection of stories, several hourglasses and a mirror. In their Australian debut, one of Norway’s most admired and skilful dance theatre companies, Panta Rei Danseteater, brings one of their characteristically fast-paced and colourful works, I Wish Her Well, to Monash University.

The work draws on two sources: the stories of four women closely related to the dancers, and the diaries of a 16-year-old girl, a girl who is now an 88-year-old woman who shared her thoughts and experiences with the creative team. Combining storytelling, muscular physicality and an evocative score by celebrated British composer Nathaniel Reed.

I Wish Her Well astutely captures the small everyday events of all our lives. These tiny details, usually left out of social histories, are brought together in a universally resonant and moving performance.

‘Both spellbinding and exciting.’ – Gazette and Herald
