HELD is a work that explores the nature of everyday physics, perception and the body-in-action via the nexus of dance and live photography. HELD was made in collaboration with one of the most critically-acclaimed dance photographers, New York-based Lois Greenfield, who captures live dance onstage throughout the performance.
As the kamikaze dancers reach beyond the limits of their bodies, Greenfield captures seemingly impossible moments that exist hidden in the ballistic choreography, well beyond the threshold of seeing. These breath-taking images are projected onto a series of large video screens interplayed with stunning video art amidst cool, expansive electronic music.
Lois Greenfield is one of the world’s most influential dance photographers, her iconic images redefined the possibilities of capturing the dancing body.
The performance we are streaming was recorded in 2004 in at the Adelaide Festival Centre.
