The Substation/ Artist/Harrison Hall/
Harrison Hall’s work situates contemporary performance and dance in experiential art environments. His recent works traverse states of flux within digital and live worlds, working to increase the embodied experience in mixed digital and live performance contexts.
Recently he was awarded a Solitude1 Residency from Chunky Move and the Tanja Liedtke foundation in which alongside Luca Dante, he spawned Maelstrom, a multi-channel digital choreography installation premiering at MARS Gallery (Melbourne) and Metro Arts (Brisbane) in late 2021. Through Chunky Move, he also presented BONANZA! with Dr. Sam Mcgilp, a PerformancexDialogue media artwork that included conversations with NAXS corp (Taiwanese audiovisual art collective) and Lu Yang (Chinese digital artist). This work was a 2021 Green Room Award Finalist and selected for the Melbourne International Film Festival.
In 2018, he created The Venusian Slip and premiered it at Mycelium Studios as part of the Melbourne Fringe, this work gave the first context for Harrison to work closely with Andrew Treloar and in early 2020 they together remounted the show at Temperance Hall as part of their Midsumma Festival program.
In 2020 Harrison was selected as a participating artist at the Taiwan Performing Art Centre’s ADAM Lab and is thrilled to be continuing his connections within this network.
He has worked nationally and internationally, collaborating and performing with many artists/companies including:
Yumi Umuimare and Theatre Gumbo (Japan), The Australian Ballet, La Fura dels Baus (Spain), Phillip Adams’ Balletlab, Shaun Parker Company + Ivo Dimchev (Bulgaria), Gideon Obarzanek, Lucy Guerin Inc, Chunky Move and Dancenorth
