Platform Paper No 60

Celebrated choreographer Sue Healey writes about her survival as an independent dance-maker.  She describes the relative wealth of Australian contemporary dance in the 1980s through to the shrinkage of funding and opportunities today.

'Through film I found new frameworks to create dance: short and feature-length films, multi-screen installations; and to show my work in different places: galleries, public art-screens, on TV and in cinemas, and in many countries,' says Healey.

'Film opened up new audiences and with the explosion of visual technology - if not of dance investment - also unimaginable new contexts for my work.'
