Pulse, my first dance film lead me on a bit of a journey as I wanted to keep researching interesting spaces and make dance films inspired by them. A visit to the Abbotsford convent was strangely timed with some family history research that my Mum and her cousin had done and an idea grew from this. I spent some time in Melbourne doing some research and making some interesting discoveries. You can read about that here: Theatrical Family History: http://www.clairemarshall.com.au/278/ 

From here I launched a crowd funded Pozible Campaign to try to raise the funds to help make the work. I was thrilled to reach my target. Ward of State also received funding from Arts Queensland last year and has allowed more time and money to go into the project. It has meant extending the project, and, in the bigger picture sense, this has been an incredibly fortunate thing for the Ward of State project – being a longer piece of work, and being higher quality product! I had been blogging about the project. Here’s my 3 blog posts about the making of the project for those who are interested:
