Founded by Rochelle Carmichael in 1996, Liquid Skin is a small contemporary dance and physical theatre company based in Melbourne. Liquid Skin is well known for its eclectic and original performance works, engaging with highly skilled performers and artists from a wide range of disciplines.

Perhaps this is because the style of her work sits outside of the fashionable Melbourne post modern/ highly conceptual/self-referential style. “
