29th January – 20th March
Inspired by the beauty and fragility of humanity juxtaposed against the backdrop of industrialised landscapes, SCAR presents a series dance-on-film installations scattered throughout the colonial architecture of The Lock-Up.
Rhythm, movement and space is explored, while simultaneously bringing to attention the repercussions of human life on the surrounding natural environment.
These newly developed works, commissioned by The Lock-Up, feature contemporary dancers Craig Bary, Alexandra Ford, Jesse Murray, Mikayla Nangle and Kyle Ramboyong.
