David Capra’s work is concerned with intercession; practices geared around the concept of healing. Last year, he danced alongside his dachshund, Teena, in a throne room inspired by the 1939 film The Wizard of Oz (Workout, MCA); In Birthing Things in the Spirit: The Water Birth, he developed a synchronised swimming work with locals at a Eaglevale Pools. (Campbelltown Arts Centre);) and in Teena at Funpark the public hugged a costumed dog reminiscent of Australia’s Wonderland, (Funpark, Sydney Festival).
In 2012 Capra was awarded the Parramatta Council/Coke-a-Cola Artist Residency creating new work with Rydalmere Public and artists Justene Williams and Mikala Dwyer and developed the dance work Durak with choreographer ANTON. In 2013 he was awarded the Blake Prize’s John Coburn Emerging Artist Award and curated Das Superpaper’s Western Sydney Edition.
