With a Bullet: The Album Project - W.A. Edition employs the same curatorial premise as Nat Cursio's 2006 and 2007 Melbourne versions. 

10 choreographers were asked to recall the first song which they ever 'made a up dance to' and re-imagine that song to create a new short work.

The final 10 pieces will eventually make up an event that is PART ALBUM, PART CONCERT, PART NOSTALGIC VORTEX.

Artists involved:
Aimee Smith, Claudia Alessi, Chrissie Parrott, Jacob Lehrer, Jo Pollitt, Joel Small, Kynan Hughes, Michael Whaites, Nat Cursio, Rachel Arianne Ogle, Sam Fox, Shona Erskine, Matthew McVeigh, Trent Suidgeest, Zoe Trotman.

Producer:
Jo Pickup

The first stage development was a performative experiment presented at PICA February 2013 (Summer Nights / Blue Room Theatre, Fringeworld) which won The City of Perth Dance Award.

The second phase in 2014 was a further creative development and showing at King St Arts Centre Perth.
