Cinema Screening

To accompany our season of Australian Dance Theatre’s Be Your Self we are screening 3 short dance films including the main film Collision Course by Garry Stewart the Artistic Director of Australian Dance Theatre.

Collision Course is a project conceived, choreographed and co-directed by Garry Stewart (choreographer of Be Your Self) and produced and co-directed by Carmelo Musca. It involves a series of bodies colliding in mid-air captured in extreme slow motion at 1500 frames per second. Collision Course includes a cast of over 100 sportspeople and dancers trained in various different physical disciplines: martial artists, rugby players, gymnasts, athletes, wrestlers, capoeira dancers, breakers (breakdance), boxers, jive dances, contemporary dancers and many others. Collision Course is screened in art galleries as well as on the outside of public buildings and will now be screened here at Riverside Theatres.

Gaia is a film by dancer and choreographer Erin Fowler and film maker Nick Graalman. The team also worked closely with composer Chris Larkin. The film was publicly released in March 2014. Gaia began the film festival circuit in May 2014.
