Australian Dance Party returns to the National Portrait Gallery to present a new short work in response to Starstruck: Australian Movie Portraits.

In a flash captures the glamour, adventure, iconography and nostalgia of life on the screen. Accompanying the dance is live photography and image manipulation exposing the ebb and flow between fiction and  reality, role and actor, raw and manipulated.

Dance Artists: Adam Deusien, Alana Stenning, Alison Plevey, Gabriela Green and Leeke Griffin.
Live photography: Lorna Sim
Live Graphics: Anna Trundle

Commissioned by the National Portrait Gallery and supported by QL2 Dance.
