LIVE: Gallery Sally Dan-Cuthbert presents Sally Smart

Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre: 1 Convention Centre Pl, South Wharf VIC 3006

The Artist’s Ballet (Performance) extends on Sally Smart’s distinctive practice, examining the intersection of dance and visual art, in particular the historical avant-garde dance company Ballets Russes and its experimental choreography, costume and theatre design as well as its legacies. In The Artist’s Ballet (Performance) Smart responds through a vivid scenography established with printed textile curtains, costume and puppet objects, a collage of performance, representing the interaction of practices and disciplines (painting, drawing, dance and theatre) framing the multiple live improvised actions of performers with their individual and collective roles, reflections of contemporary life interacting in place, through dance, spoken word and song.

Sally Smart is represented by Gallery Sally Dan-Cuthbert (Melbourne Art Fair, Booth I3)

LIVE is presented by Glenfiddich.
