Moon in Aries

In response to Venus 2018-2020, Moon in Aries parallels Koons’ experimentation with the mirror—offering a matte contrast. Nodding quietly to the artist’s use of materials, reflection, and references from art history to commercial kitsch, two dancers ritualistically enter, pause, then exit the space in an immanent, feminine transit. Conceived by Hamish McIntosh and performed by Valentina Dillon and Emily Laursen, this hour long embrace invites the audience’s gaze as if their bodies, like the Venus herself, were mirrored and brilliant.

This work is part of a series of choreographed responses to works within the NGV Triennial  as part of Triennial EXTRA, developed by Victorian College of the Arts post-graduate research students and performed by students from the Bachelor of Fine Arts (Dance) at the University of Melbourne.  The University of Melbourne is the proud Research Partner of the NGV Triennial.

Public Service – Cruising the Cafeteria

In response to Boudoir Babylon by Adam Nathaniel Furman + Sibling Architecture, and provocation from A Single Voice by Susan Philipsz, Luke George with collaborators Alexander Powers and Sarah Aiken, invoke the chorus performer from mid-20th century American film spectacles of flamboyant dance fantasies, crooning songsters and liberated camera movements. A singular body is isolated from the choreography en masse, their movements and labour deconstructed through a deliberately slow re-embodiment. Playfully orbiting, climbing and tumbling down the technicolour tiers of edible forms, the performer cruises the salon’s catwalks and peepholes – a serenade in service to the mass.

LSdlr

In response to If I die, please delete my Soundcloud  by Natasha Matila-Smith, Hamish McIntosh presents a durational response that alludes to Matila-Smith’s own hidden, tender figure and references Michel Fokine’s 1911 ballet, Le Spectre de la rose, both pieces addressing a fantasy of nearness in a (socially) distant world.

Lucent

Through the exploration of Noh theatre, Lucent draws upon a common nexus with Cerith Wyn Evans’ C=O=D=A, where performing bodies are organised in a unified processual site of perception, encompassing their interiority and the entirety of the space. Dancers connect the vectors and complex forms of the white neon sculpture creating an arc of movement with their bodies. Choreographed by Naree Vachananda and performed by Caitlin Mewett and Anna Tolotchkov.

Inien

Informed by a multi-species dialogue with aquatic life, a solo performer dances on the edge of the visible. Disappearing and re-appearing, metamorphosing with the shifting patterns of Tromarama’s Solaris, she cuts between shapes and crystallizing moments of connection with diverse life forms. Choreographed by Professor Carol Brown and performed by Gabrielle Fallon.

As She Floats

‘She started to float into the sky because of the overdose. Although he wanted to shoot her in order to prevent her from floating further, he could not bear to aim the arrow at her. She kept on floating until she landed on the moon.’

Inspired by the myth of the Chinese moon goddess Chang’e, encounter Scotty So’s performance of As She Floats across the Ground Floor of NGV International during Triennial EXTRA. Dressed in a holographic Tang dynasty style Hanfu and hair and makeup of the traditional image of the moon goddess, Scotty So silently lipsyncs her story in Chinese Opera as an offering to the spirits of the space.

Spotlight on Shadows

Spotlight on Shadows initiates conversations between Kathak, one of the eight major forms of Indian classical dance and Salon Et Lumiere, a digital recreation of the great Salon Hang, negotiating space-making in-between the light and shadows and the story of one frame reaching out to the other. Choreographed by Shinjita Roy and performed by Sarah Kosoof, Aimee Raitman, Freya Humphery and Amelia O’Leary.
