Raewyn Hill's WAGHT solo

Small, contained, her hair pulled casually into a small knot, Raewyn Hill is quietly spoken, intense, close to tears when she talks about dancing. Concealed in the soft layers of dance clothing are formidable stamina and extraordinary drive. Hill is compelled to dance - a compulsion that fuels her choreo-graphic career. At the top of her field, with access to a job anywhere in the world, she wants to dance here - "where I'm born, where my roots are; that's what drives me".
