FRAME: A biennial of dance is a new festival coming to Melbourne next month


FRAME: A biennial of dance is a new pilot festival in Melbourne and surrounds occurring throughout March 2023.

FRAME has been created following three years of consultation and co-design and exists through the collective will, desire and need of the dance sector comprising artists, organisations, arts workers, presenters and advocates.

Today, Melbourne’s incredible Centre for Projection Art have announced their upcoming Body-Cites program, which will show as part of the very first FRAME Festival happening in March.

Body-Cites is a collection of works in research-based outputs that generate new knowledge around working with innovative new mediums at an intersection of choreographic scores, film, technology, automation, artificial intelligence, animation and science through projection-based exhibitions and installations.

Taking place across multiple sites in March, The Centre for Projection Art will present a series of site-specific artworks, conversations and a screen-based program.

Body-Cites features immersive installation artworks by Annika Koops, Matt Gingold & Philipe Pasquier at Abbotsford Convent and Megan Beckwith at Brunswick Mechanics Institute.

This project extends to a series of choreographic experiments on screen by artists; The Third Thing, Luna Mrozik Gawler, Wendy Yu and Sam McGilp & Harrison Hall will be presented at Composite Moving Image Agency and Media Bank in Naarm.

The program will also be exhibited at Bunjil Place and satellited to Metro Arts in Meajin. Complementing the exhibition and screen program will be a series of artist talks presented in unison with their works and sites.
