‘Far Flung’ premieres at You Are Here
Part dance work, part live video installation, Far Flung will be presented on March 19 and 21 at You Are Here Canberra, a curated festival that showcases the best of Canberra’s independent and experimental arts culture for 10 days in March every year.
Far Flung is an “interactive, real-time performance event that explores the challenges and excitement of long-distance communication.” Originally devised by artists Courtney Scheu, Ashlee Bye, Anna Kallstrom, Robert Brassington and Hannah Wong, this presentation will feature Scheu and Bye in association with QL2 Dance.
Creating a unique and captivating experience, Far Flung simultaneously takes place across three different venues linked together by online video conferencing. Audience members get to choose their vantage point and are then encouraged to change their point of view as often as they like throughout the performance.
This collaborative effort joins artists based in Melbourne and Brisbane with young dancers from QL2 Dance set in B-Block Hall at Gorman House Arts Centre. For more information, visit www.agac.com.au/event/far-flung. Performances are free and bookings are not required.
