Encounter the exhilarating physicality of dance as it is presented on screen in 24 Frames Per Second, a dynamic and ambitious exhibition exploring the nexus between film, dance and the visual arts.

Originally commissioned by Carriageworks over three years, this presentation platforms artists working at the forefront of experimental and cross-disciplinary practice: from intimate expression to shared ritual, classical aesthetic to cultural heritage, and studio space to spectacular landscape.

Don’t miss Physical Forces, three days of genre-bending dance programs celebrating the opening of 24 Frames Per Second, 25-27 May.

This project was commissioned by Carriageworks and assisted by the Australian Government through the Australia Council for the Arts, its arts funding and advisory body.
