The collective take a look at dance through the camera lens. Each 1 minute webisode shows the dancer exploring a unique environment with a peculiar object used as a costume. Choreographed to an eclectic soundscape composed by Timothy Constable, WEBISODES brings the dance to your desktop in strange and surprising scenes.
WORLD PREMIERE | SYDNEY FESTIVAL 2020
A celebration of social life before social media, when to meet was to talk, laugh and move to music together.
From the early 1930s to the late 1960s, the Rivoli Dance Palace on Church St, Parramatta was Western Sydney’s favourite dance hall. It was demolished in 1973 to make way for an office development. Now nothing remains of ‘The Riv’ except the stories of the people who danced there.
Dance Makers Collective brings those stories to life in a tribute to the rituals of social dance and the human drive toward belonging and togetherness.
Staged in the Heritage-listed Granville Town Hall, The Rivoli invites you and your favourite dance partner to be swept into an immersive exploration of mid-century nightlife, desire and social connection.
