In a unique digital broadcast from Carriageworks, shot by aerial drone and moving cameras, Sue Healey’s On View: Panoramic Suite weaves live performances amongst a 7 screen video installation to create a visionary augmented cinematic experience.


Building on the extraordinary Live Action Relay (Liveworks 2020), viewers can experience On View: Panoramic Suite as a captivating digital broadcast crafted by Healey and cinematographer Ken Butti, revealing Carriageworks’ spaces and the remarkable cast of performers in ways not seen before. The broadcast features celebrated dance artists Nalina Wait and Martin del Amo alongside live percussionist Laurence Pike, intricate thread portraits by Jane Theau and music by Darrin Verhagen. 

On View: Panoramic Suite was created over 8 years across 3 countries: a sweeping panoramic vision of dance across cultures, landscapes and individuals. This specially-crafted digital event augments the ways we see and experience dance and includes precise, meditative portraits of 27 dancers aged 28-106, from Australia, Hong Kong and Japan. Healey's work offers breathtaking encounters with these extraordinary artists, in a moving study of the nuances of the dancing body and its cultural landscape. 

Duration: 60 minutes 

This event will be available on-demand until Midnight Sunday 31st Oct 2021. Purchase a ticket to access the password for this work.
