About Face

About Face, an unauthorised biography by a woman who has forgotten who she is, was originally commissioned by the Sydney Opera House and assisted by the NSW Ministry of the Arts and played to sell-out audiences in The Studio, Sydney Opera House in 2001.

In 2002, Kate received a Robert Helpmann Award for Best Female Dancer in a Ballet or Dance Work for her performance in About Face.
