Australian Premiere

Live Underwater at ADL Film Fest

Acclaimed British multimedia, performance and installation artist Sue Austin will present the South Hemisphere premiere of her underwater, live art event 'Creating the Spectacle!' exclusively as part of the ADL Film Fest.

Dramatic and unexpected juxtapositions attach new and powerful narratives to the objecthood of the wheelchair. Austin's art opens up debate around societal attitudes to disability through the presentation of empowered and empowering images.

Austin takes her wheelchair underwater to perform a stunningly beautiful work that will be filmed and projected poolside. Award winning Restless Dance Theatre will accompany Austin with a performance as part of this unique live art event.

"It's shifting everyone on their axis in terms of their preconceptions of the most fundamental symbol of disability - the wheelchair." - British Paraorchestra
