I Dance is a conference celebrating inclusive dance film making across Australia and the world.

The films are then available online for two weeks for relaxed and accessible viewing of films offered with captions, Auslan and Audio Description.

Animate Loading is a site-responsive, iterative choreographic work, which first took place on a rooftop carpark. It is a disability-led project with access-centred principles at its core; designed to enable the collaborating artists to create as freely and fully as possible. A dynamic group of performers draw on their diverse movement languages and embodied experiences. Informed by the architectural and social context, the performers activate the space; reconfiguring our interactions with place, architecture and each other. The work is an embodied call to action: to disrupt, resist and change our relationships within and around so-called public space.

This film version – Animate Loading: 1 – exists to make the work accessible to those who could not attend the live performances. It seeks to convey the feelings, textures, tones and moods within the live work. It features a number of distinct visual styles to enhance the work’s themes, and heighten the embodied experience – including first-person bodycam, drone work, and surveillance-style cinematography.

DANSE DE LA LUNE | 3:59

Passionate about creative expression in dance, film and art, Chris creates works inspired by experimental mixing up of movement, music and visual art, aimed at giving his audience a positive uplifting experience.

 

In ‘Common Colours’ Chris intended to present bright rainbow colours that he regularly uses in his paintings along with movement to create a sense of wonder in the ordinary everyday world. Attending a Holi Festival celebration in Adelaide he realised its influence on the work by using the coloured powders and its feel-good message of forgiveness and triumph of good over evil.

LOOK THE PART | 6:31

Sam is a disabled cleaner working in a large theatre who has a passion to be a dancer, but she's afraid to step into the light. When Peaches (her magical inner-diva-cum-drag queen) materialises at night, Sam’s creativity takes flight. She rips up a daring dance-number, to the rhythm of The Cat Empire’s beats. Look The Part, is the story of talent defying expectation, and magic transforming reality.

ONE HUNDRED AND ELEVEN | 21.08

111 is a powerful duet between two exceptional dancers – Joel Brown and Eve Mutso – as they explore their different strengths and vulnerabilities. Joel is a paraplegic dancer, self-trained, who dances with CandoCo – the UK’s leading inclusive dance company and Eve is former principal dancer with Scottish Ballet.

111 is the number of vertebrae that Joel and Eve have between them… hypothetically. Eve “moves like she has a hundred”, Joel’s spin is fused and he jokes he only has 11.

RESEMBLANCE | 3:10

A woman sits in a battered building, assembling and disassembling a crutch with the precision of a trained soldier. Commissioned as part of 14-18 NOW – an arts programme to commemorate the centenary of the First World War – internationally renowned choreographer Claire Cunningham invites us to consider both the constructive and destructive potential of the innovative tools we have invented. Eerie and potent, the production design evokes contemporary conflict zones while suggesting conflicts yet to be fought.

Directed by Dale Corlett

Performed by Claire Cunningham

SISTER | 4.43

Inspired by the different landscapes environments and renewable energy sources of Scotland and Indonesia this award winning film was created through a digital residency explores the need for art residency (Dance Dialogue) between Marc Brew (Marc Brew Company) and Mariska Febriyani (Ballet.id) exploring the concept of space and restrictions, (reflecting on the pandemic). 

Choreographers/Dancers: Marc Brew, Mariska Febriyani Producers/Directors: Susan Hay/Mariska Febriyani

Assistant Producer: Kevin Julianto

Videographers: Jamie Bradley-Hay, Susan Hay, Faishal Ammar, Reynold Setiadi

Editors: Jamie Bradley-Hay, Reynold Setiadi

Music Composer: Bagaskoro Putro Dewandoro

Dance Dialogues was a digital art residency between Marc Brew (Marc Brew Company) and Mariska Febriyani (Ballet.id) exploring the concept of space and restrictions, (reflecting on the pandemic).  Marc and Mariska started the discussion through movement, but setting each other tasks/ a score and choosing an outdoor location for the score to be explored in. Settings for the explorations varied and contrasted, as Marc lives in rural Scotland, while Mariska is based in Jakarta, a lively heavily populated city. Each exploration was filmed and the films edited to create two final pieces - Renewable (led by the Scottish team) and Logue (led by the Indonesian team).

 

The project was funded by Creative Scotland and British Council Connections through Culture.
