Stuck in the Middle With You is an exciting and immersive virtual reality dance experience that fuses choreography, performance, documentary and drama to put viewers on stage with the Sydney Dance Company.

  • Using cutting-edge virtual reality technology, viewers are taken on a vibrant and pulsating visceral journey, that fuses choreography, performance, documentary and drama to generate an unprecedented lifelike experience.

    Part of an energetic and at times, frenetic contemporary dance piece, viewers are transported on stage amidst a cacophony of movement and sound. As the experience evolves, viewers begin interacting with other performers, boldly interrogating them about the nature of dance before becoming a component of the choreography themselves.

    This landmark moving image work is directed by award-winning filmmaker Matthew Bate and ex-Chunky Move artistic director Gideon Obarzanek, whose previous short docu-drama collaboration, I Want To Dance Better At Parties, won the Dendy Award for Best Short Film at the Sydney Film Festival (2014).
