Fine Line (2004) and Fine Line Terrain (2004) are both part of Sue Healey’s Niche Series (2002-04).

Fine Line is a nine-minute dance film, which won the Best Dance Film Ausdance (2003), ReelDance Australia New Zealand (2004), and Il Coreografo Elettronico, Napolizdanza, Italy (2004).

Fine Line Terrain is a 60-minute live performance for five dancers, which explores the spaces we inhabit. The performance space becomes dissected with white lines, creating geometric ‘houses’ that connect, entangle and ultimately collapse. Intimate relationships are framed and mapped by lines, highlighting the precariousness of our relationship to the world and to each other. This is dance that explores the subtle intricacies of our relationship to the space around us. Fine Line Terrain was nominated for Outstanding Achievement in Choreography and Outstanding Achievement for Performance by a Company, Ausdance 2004. [Text courtesy of the artist.]
