Director Rhys Graham / 2021 / Australia

A 2020 large-scale participatory-dance work choreographed by the acclaimed Stephanie Lake expresses the inexpressible in lockdown.

Directed by Rhys Graham (Galore, MIFF 2013), Multiply revisits the 400-person-strong dance event held in November 2020 at inner-suburban Melbourne’s Prahran Square, which was staged as an artistic response to social isolation. Tracing the weeks prior to the performance, including footage of staggered rehearsals and masked studio visits, alongside discursive commentary from dancers and Lake herself, Multiply demonstrates the intimacy and impact of choreography on the commons in a time of heightened disconnection.

The Bodies in Motion shorts package is presented by Campari
