About

A surreal dance experience that crosses the boundary between performance, visual art and installation, Metadance celebrates the architectural beauty of dance and how it translates to text, animation and sound.

Created by Chrissie Parrott and Jonathan Mustard, this dance work is a groundbreaking collaboration between choreographer, animator, performer and technology. Swathes of translucent fabric carve the stage into a maze while animated figures and data are projected, bathing the set and dancers in a virtual waterfall of light that shifts at different rates and in different planes.

The imagery disturbs our perception of space as the dancers move to a compelling musical score.

Metadance won three Ausdance WA awards in 2008. Chrissie Parrott for outstanding achievement in choreography, Joshua Mu for best male dancer and Parrott, Mustard and Nancy Jones for best design and/or composition.
