Performance Space, in association with Freespace, West Kowloon Cultural District, Aichi Prefectural Art Theatre, Yokohama Red Brick Warehouse No.1 and with the support of the City of Sydney, is proud to present the Australian Premiere of Sue Healey’s stunning video and live dance installation On View: Panoramic Suite at Sydney Town Hall.
On View: Panoramic Suite explores the dimensions of cine-portraiture. It challenges the way we view a dancer’s presence, gaze and gesture. A moving study of the nuances of the dancing body and its cultural landscape. A captivating multi-screen video-installation, activated in the evenings by transformative and poetic live dance performance from Martin del Amo, Raghav Handa, Nanette Hassall, Eileen Kramer and Nalina Wait. A culmination of Sue Healey’s 8 years capturing precise, meditative portraits of 27 dancers aged 28-106, from Australia, Hong Kong and Japan. Creating a panoramic vision of these extraordinary individuals who traverse a breathtaking range of cultures, dance styles and geographies. The result is a moving study of the nuances of the dancing body and its cultural landscape.
Appearing for two days only, Monday 28th and Tuesday 29th June in Sydney’s majestic Town Hall, you can experience On View: Panoramic Suite as a captivating multi-screen video installation during the day from 1-5pm. Then, each evening at 7pm, the installation is activated by transformative and poetic live dance performance.
