Event Description

Nightly showing 9pm-9:30pm

RUSH OF WATER / RUSH OF AIR is a free outdoor large-scale dance-video installation by Suddenly Dance Theatre on the theme of ‘Gathering’. In reference to Victoria’s origins, the title is inspired by the name given to the ground now called Victoria - in which the First Nations people called “Camosack,” or “rush of water.”

Located at the inner southern archways on Broad Street, the project utilises the architecture of historic Centennial Square as a projection environment. The impact of the dance is monumental in scale in an attempt to enliven the square, also known as ‘Spirit Square’. The installation of RUSH OF WATER / RUSH OF AIR acknowledges the etherial elements of dance made of projected light particles, and suggests a poetic metaphor of the ever-changing nature of a public place by using a medium which inhabits the space without a trace.

RUSH OF WATER / RUSH OF AIR coincides with Suddenly Dance Theatre’s 15th ROMP! and 20th anniversary season, as well as Victoria’s 150th Celebrations. This collaboratively created project features principal co-choreographers/dancers David Ferguson and Jung ah Chung, with Robb Beresford of Ballet Victoria. Co-directors Miles Lowry and David Ferguson collaborate with composers Joanna Hood and Ajtony Csaba to create a sonic rush, ebb and flow.
