Place made: Sydney, New South Wales, Australia
Creation Notes: email from Helen Ennis to SL 17 FEB 2017: Hi Shaune and Annie I found a reference from Shona Dunlop saying that she left the Bodenwieser dance company in 1948 so have amended the date. Reference is in the book An Ecstasy of Purpose, p.122. So this changes the date range to 1940-48.
