This project is founded in Tracie Mitchell’s award winning theatre work named Sure (1998). Sure was made for 10 dancers and has a single front from which the work is viewed. Using a 360 camera she has re-imagined the physical space so that both the onstage movement and offstage movement patterns are revealed.
This work is made possible by the 360 Artist Development, an initiative of Ausdance Victoria in conjunction with Gertrude Street Projection Festival and venue support of Melbourne Academy of Performing Arts. This artist development program provides mentorship, and equipment to stage a dance work in Virtual Reality.
Performed by: Alice Dixon; Hannah Glennie; Rosie Leverton; Hendrik Lesmana; Caroline Meaden; Emily Shoesmith; Ruby Teather; Patrick Weir.
