In 2008 she and collaborator Kate Stanley received Best Movement Award and an Australian Dance Award nomination for their Fringe Festival premier of Max. In 2008 Fiona commissioned a new solo work I’ll Crane for You by Deborah Hay that was performed alongside her own choreography Abrielle in a solo season at the Victorian College of the Arts Margaret Lawrence Gallery. Throughout 2009 Fiona and Kate Stanley have continued to work together with the support of the Next Wave Festival’s Kickstart program and Guildford Lane Gallery Wednesday Project in order to create new work JOY. Fiona continues to develop her solo repertoire and in December presented Folk Dance No 1 as a part of the Lucy Guerin Inc. Pieces for Small Spaces. She remains a key artist with Dancehouse’s Movement Research Melbourne and a regular guest performer at the Cecil St Little Con. Fiona is the recipient of both a City of Melbourne Young Artist and Australia Council ArtStart grant that will be used to support her ongoing collaborative and solo work including the learning of a second solo from Deborah Hay in 2010.
