The remarkable Fern Smith has been part of my professional world since we both left college around the same time, but it’s only in the last five or six years that we’ve really got to know each other well and worked together closely. She is one of the most visionary and insightful people I know – never mind the fact that she is also an extraordinary performer. Fern recently left Volcano – the company she founded with Paul Davies – and is embracing a new and perhaps even more significant chapter in her career. I couldn’t think of anyone better to be one of the guides as part of this project.
After discussing it with Chapter, the consensus was that Kitsch N Sync Collective’s amazing Kylie Ann Smith – a dance artist and theatre maker who is already achieving great things – would be the perfect match for this walk.
