We are thrilled to unveil Liminal, the latest offering on ADC’s Digital Suite – the suite, launched late last year, is a bespoke collection of works commissioned for the digital space.
A cornerstone of ADC’s artistic vision is reimagining our performance spaces and mediums. Artistic Director Amy Hollingsworth is committed to commissioning multiple iteration works that originate from the same creative heart to find new ways to connect with you, our audience.
This stunning dance film Liminal was created alongside and in tandem with Limbic, a performance work created for the stage that will premiere as part of ADC’s season of THREE at QPAC from 16 – 19 March.
Both works are the products of a collaboration between Australasian Dance Collective and multidisciplinary artist and award-winning director and choreographer Cass Mortimer Eipper.
Filmed on location in Brisbane at the Old Museum, the film follows a young woman as she explores her embodied self. Mortimer Eipper said.
“She’s drawn into the world of others and discovers herself navigating the interplay of self and sociality. Betwixt and between the threat and the promise of becoming one among many, she comes to terms with how she can co-exist with something beyond her own being. Venturing further and further, she pivots into the person from whom she departed”
Creating for both stage and film, Mortimer Eipper has presented work throughout Australia, Europe, India and the U.S.A. He has worked with and performed works by Rafael Bonachela, Gideon Obarzanek, Alexander Ekman, Jacopo Godani, Francis Rings, Lightfoot Leon, Andonis Foniadakis, Natalie Weir and William Forsythe.
His awards include Global Short Film Awards Cannes: Best Dance Film for ‘Brute’; Helpmann Award: Most Outstanding Male Dancer for his performance in William Forsythe’s ‘Quintett’; Rome International Choreography Competition: Most Outstanding Performance for his work ‘Solo 1.5’; and Stuttgart International Dance Festival: 3rd prize for his performance in Emma Sandall’s ‘bodysong’.
Mortimer Eipper’s choreographic commissions include Sydney Dance Company, Milwaukee Ballet, West Australian Ballet, Queensland Ballet, Australasian Dance Collective, Trey McIntyre Projects, Transit Dance Company, Link Dance Company, Sydney Symphony Orchestra and the Australian dance/media company, Ludwig, of which he was co-director.
“As a multidisciplinary artist, Cass Mortimer Eipper’s range of skills make him a sought-after creator” ADC’s Artistic Director, Amy Hollingsworth says of Mortimer Eipper. “Cass inherently understands ADC’s vision for redefining our boundaries and reimagining how we connect with audiences.”
