This unique exhibition at Carriageworks will be accompanied by a series of nightly performances. It will see esteemed choreographer Sue Healey collaborate with photographer Judd Overton to produce a series of live portraits of dance artists.
Healey has selected five dancers with very different styles of movement: Martin del Amo, Shona Erskine, Benjamin Hancock, Raghav Handa and Nalina Wait. An accompanying work will also feature video portraits of Australian dance legends Dame Lucette Aldous and Professor Shirley McKechnie AO.
By crafting simple and complex choreography, Healey is interested in exploring how we view performance and how we make sense of moving images. Utilising the whole of Bay 20, the exhibition will comprise filmed and live choreography that will play out simultaneously — the dancers will perform against their virtual selves. If you're planning on taking a look at this immersive interdisciplinary project, note that while the daily exhibition is free, the nightly performances will be ticketed.
