Thanks to a joint venture between Sydney's Critical Path and Mirramu Creative Arts Centre at Weereewa (Lake George), Lisa was the recipient of a parallel residency alongside Taiwanese choreographer I-Chin Lin. In November Lisa spent time at Mirramu playing with video cameras, hats and a lazy Susan, as well as having the opportunity to discuss her work with I-Chin, Mirramu's owner / director Elizabeth Cameron Dalman and visitors to Mirramu. The residency has led to the beginnings of a new solo performance work that looks at the maturing woman's body in the digital age.
