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.

Free live screenings every Monday at 5pm from October 12. Available on Vimeo On Demand for rental until December 31st (rent all for USD$21 — including those films that have not yet been uploaded)
