National Gallery of Australia

Upcoming FEB 2024

National Gallery of Australia has commissioned A Sun Dance: an original choreographic performance work by Rochelle Haley for presentation in February 2024. 

At the core of the work is a relation between performer, sunlight and architecture. A Sun Dance is made in relation to the original architecture of the National Gallery building,

specifically shafts of sunlight streaming through architectural forms provides changing ‘sets’ for dance over the course of a day. 

A Sun Dance is a key case study for the Australian Research Council funded project, Precarious Movements: Choreography and the Museum. Specifically, the project will test and develop new principles of performance preservation with TATE Conservation.
