Dancehouse stands on what always was and always will be Aboriginal land. We pay our respects to the traditional owners of this land, the Wurundjeri peoples of the Kulin Nation, to their elders past, present and emerging, and acknowledge that sovereignty was never ceded.

Presented as a part of Game Changers, curated by Tracie Mitchell for Dance (Lens)

This film deals with homophobia and misogyny. Using gesture, dance and monologue, it begins with a gay bashing in the back streets of Sydney and explores the resonance of this violence in the lives of the people involved and their relationships.

The screening will be followed by an interview between Tracie Mitchell and Choreographer/Dancer Mathew Bergan.

Director: Stephen Cummins
Starring: Andrea Aloise, Mathew Bergan, Chad Courtney, Annette Evans
Co-creator/Music and Sound Design: Simon Hunt

Dance (Lens)

The Dance (Lens) series highlights outstanding Dance Films from Australia and internationally with artist Q&As.

Like dance, film is conveyed in time. A time which can be manipulated, accelerated, stopped and rewound at will. On-screen narratives are produced by the rhythmic combination of takes, jump-cuts, wipes, fade-ins and fade-outs — where the camera itself becomes a choreographic tool that extends beyond the physical boundaries of the body and the stage.

Dance (Lens) explores the embodiment and disembodiment of dance, speculative stages, screening history and the communal dance of watching from the other side of the screen.
