World Premiere | Australia
Celebrated Australian choreographer, filmmaker and installation artist Sue Healey premieres her latest series of cinematic portraits of contemporary dance artists from Hong Kong and Japan.
Filmed in locations significant to each dancer, On View: In Translation merges the spaces between the choreographic and the filmic in pursuit of the transcendent nature of performance presence. A cross cultural work displayed across an immersive 5-screen video system, this enchanting display casts an analytical eye over the body in motion and its ability to speak across borders of perception, culture and identity.
Dissecting the very nature of portraiture and the unspoken language of dance, On View: In Translation is a kinesthetic reflection on the transformative power of the dancer.
