THE FARTHEST POSSIBLE DISTANCE YOU CAN BE AWAY AWAY AWAY FROM ME
CHARLES BALL & Scott Sneddon | AUSTRALIA
"Farthest Distance" is born from an interstate collaboration between Scott Sneddon and Charles Ball. Culminating at the intersection of dance and theatre, the work explores technology-dependent long distance relationships, coupled with a meta narrative of online collaboration.
Within this cyberspace, distance takes a different perspective; we are simultaneously more connected and disconnected than ever before. Through a cross-disciplinary exploration of distance, communication, (dis)connection and relationships, Farthest Distance breaks down traditional performer-audience relationships, while revealing the tremendous potential and unfortunate truths of collaborating online.
"Farthest Distance" is presented as part of Supercell’s Independent Dance Exchange or INDEX program. INDEX supports QLD dance artists by providing a festival platform for developing fresh ideas and presenting brand new works. In 2018, Supercell have joined forces with the incredible Phluxus2 Dance Collective to continue opening doors for collaborative opportunities and generating innovative ideas for choreographers.

Scott is a physical-theatre-poet, combining writing and a physical vocabulary. His solo works have toured internationally. The past 3 years has seen Scott emerge as a powerful choreographer and physical theatre practitioner, taking his poetic style into a realm of movement that is unique and refreshing. He is currently based in Melbourne teaching drama at Melbourne University.
Charles is a Brisbane-based performer, choreographer and teacher. As an independent artist, he has worked with The Farm, Expressions Dance Company, Queensland Ballet, Prying Eye, Liesel Zink, Paul Malek, Melissa Lanham and Kate Shearer. Drawing influence from his studies in psychology, Charles explores intra and interpersonal relationships in his creative practice. Using a multi-disciplined approach, he seeks to challenge established norms of what can be considered dance, and how live performance art can be experienced by the viewer.
