Working with WA composer Tim Cunniffe, Hold Your Horses (Thea Costantino, Tarryn Gill and Pilar Mata Dupont) have created 'The Soloists (a case study)', a choral adaptation of Freud’s famous ‘failed’ case, Dora.
Dora is an eighteen-year-old ‘hysteric’ hopelessly entangled in the destructive relationships of her family and their intimate friends. Freud’s attempts to enact a cure are thwarted by Dora’s ability to elude the analysis. In The Soloists, the testimonies of each character within the case study compete within a sound world made entirely of human voices.
The work was developed during a residency at the Fremantle Arts Centre and presented in a solo exhibition at the Fremantle Arts Centre from the 21st May - 17th July 2011.
