Collision Course is a study in movement produced by Australian Dance Theatre in collaboration with CM Film Productions (Perth).
Based on a concept developed by Australian Dance Theatre’s Artistic Director – Garry Stewart, the work features 48 extreme slow motion collisions between dancers, boxers, martial artists, gymnasts, football players and street culture enthusiasts.
The high-speed video, used to capture the collisions, manipulates time and perception through slowing down movement to such an enormous degree so that the smallest gesture becomes monumental. In each collision we witness in vivid detail the reconfiguration of faces, limbs and bodies as they collide against each other with impact.
The enormous elasticity of the body’s flesh and collagen is well beyond what can be perceived in real time but via this medium we are drawn into the secret world of the physics of our bodies in full flight and under stress
