The premiere of Sue Healey’s extraordinary ON VIEW: Live Portraits paints a series of live portraits of five Australian dance artists: Martin del Amo, Shona Erskine, Benjamin Hancock, Raghav Handa, and Nalina Wait, as well as video portraits of the legendary Dame Lucette Aldous and Professor Shirley McKechnie AO, icons of Australian dance, as part of a complimentary exhibition throughout the season.
Featuring both filmed and live choreography, ON VIEW: Live Portraits highlights the artists’ unique skills in shaping and transforming identity through meticulous attention to movement across mediums and generations of dance artists. A provocative dialogue between live performers and their cinematic selves, Healey’s work celebrates diverse ways of thinking through the body.
