Alice Glenn (No Lights No Lycra) discusses the nuances of capturing dance on film with Celia Rowlson-Hall (Ma, MIFF 2016), Anouk van Dijk (Chunky Move), Gideon Obarzanek (Sydney Dance Company) and Ella Havelka (Ella, MIFF 2016).
Critics Campus 2016 participant Jessica Ellicott discusses virtuous women, the language of dance, and wanting to be Jesus with Ma director Celia Rowlson-Hall.
Critics Campus 2016 participant Ella Donald explores the elegiac and expressive films in the Melbourne International Film Festival’s Dance on Film program.
