UNSW Art & Design's Rochelle Haley debuts a new major installation and performance, Afterglow, Hazelhurst Regional Gallery & Arts Centre.
Afterglow explores Haley's interest in movement patterns across both choreography and painting. By inviting the audience to participate, Haley experiments with the division between audience and performer.
Working with artist Kate Scardifeild and choreographer Brook Stamp, Haley creates an art installation composed of 20 Physical Culture dancers from Figtree Physie that flows with colour, pattern and light around the audience. Abstraction in painting unravels and transforms into a stage for a moving and living painting. Dancers will wear costumes in shapes and colours that reflect the palette and forms of a painting. Moveable walls turn into sculptures and coloured lights, draped fabric and beaded curtains dress the gallery.
Hazelhurst Regional Gallery & Arts Centre's gallery curator, Carrie Kibbler says "The project uses colour, pattern, light, shape and dance to create an immersive, living 'painting' which audiences can visually and physically experience."
Performance times: every hour from 10am to 4pm (each performance 15-20 minutes).
This project has been assisted by the Australian Government through the Australia Council for the Arts, its arts funding, and advisory body.
