Explore the physical and the virtual in a journey of exciting possibilities with DANCE X.

DANCE X will offer an opportunity to explore the physical and the virtual in a journey of exciting possibilities from Wednesday 10 May to Sunday 30 July. Whether it is your first encounter with dance or part of your life’s passion, this enthralling FREE exhibition will challenge the way you view dance and choreography through a maze of technology and sensory delights.
From the subtle to the obvious, DANCE X places you at the centre of this unique experience, giving you the control to explore and engage the body in different states of physical, sensorial, kinaesthetic and mental experiences drawing connections between dance and everyday.

Developed over three years of place-based research and practice, local artist Gareth Hart, Gülsen Özer and Viv Rogis have collaborated to create this engaging and thought-provoking participatory installation specifically for the Yarra Ranges Regional Museum.

Drawing from the Yarra Ranges cultural and physical landscape Gülsen Özer, Gareth Hart & Viv Rogis bring their own dance experiences and desires together through a series of ‘real world’ and ‘virtual reality’ activities, taking you on a journey from light to dark, from child to adult.

Proudly funded by a Yarra Ranges Council Arts & Heritage Development Grant, DANCE X will also combines a series of intimate workshops for all ages, offering something for the whole family.

Wed 10 May – Sun 30 July 2017 - 10am-4pm daily at the Yarra Ranges Regional Museum 35-37 Castella St, Lilydale, 03 9294 6313. Suitable for All Ages / FREE entry.
