The ReelDance Archive contains significant examples of local and international dance on screen work and tracks the development of dance on screen as an art form over the last two decades in Australia and Internationally through the work of more than 200 renowned and emerging artists.
ReelDance began in 1999 as a response to the growth in choreographic, screen-based works both internationally and in Australia and New Zealand. Under the guidance of founding director Erin Brannigan, the first ReelDance Festival was staged in 2000 a one-off screening in Sydney's Chinatown that became a biennial event with an ever-growing tour schedule. In 2009, the Australia Council for the Arts granted ReelDance the status of 'emerging key organisation'. After 12 years as a world-leading organisation dedicated to commissioning, exhibiting, promoting and collecting Australian and international dance on screen, ReelDance closed on 31 August 2012. The ReelDance Archive (along with the biennial Dance on Screen festival) has been one of ReelDance's major achievements.
The archive provides resources for teaching, research and artistic development in dance, an art form that is notoriously difficult to pin down as an object of study. Amongst practices where dance and the moving image co-exist, the collection documents developments in single-screen work across a crucial historical period.
This archive has been curated by Erin Brannigan, Alessio Cavallero and Tracie Mitchell, and features the work of artists such as Cobie Orger, Kate Murphy, Shona McCullagh, Paul Zivkovich, Paul McNeill, La Ribot, Les Ballets C de la B, Thierry de Mey, Julie-Anne Long, Sean O'Brien, Jan Verbeek, Jonathan Burrows, Ballet Russes, Heidrun Lohr, Nalina Wait, Sue Healey, Meg Stuart and Lucy Guerin.
