Dance experience celebrates queer culture at Festival of Live Art
Acclaimed American, Melbourne-based artist Jonathan Homsey brought Mx.Red (March 14-24), a virtual
dance installation, and a Waackin’ Ball to Footscray Community Arts Centre (FCAC) as part of the 2018
Festival of Live Art (FOLA).The free Mx.Red installation combines motion capture technology and live performances to create a new experience of dance, expression and intimacy beyond gender lines. Featuring music by Joyce Wrice (USA), and choreography by Sela Vai (Western Sydney) and Homsey, Mx.Red transports audiences to a portal of movement from another dimension.
Mx.Red was supported by the Victorian Government through Creative Victoria, NSW Government through Create NSW, City of Maribrynong, The Japan Foundation and the American Australian Association. Technical partners include Spectre and Plattar. Promotional partner includes Ausdance Victoria.
