Flatline is a cross-artform collective founded by Visual Artist Todd Fuller and Dance Artist Carl Sciberras that launched in 2011. Flatline creates works that are a hybrid of art and dance; their work is responsive, interactive, experimental, playful and transformative. Flatline has been a vehicle for its Directors to develop a unique language, carving a niche between the art and dance world, embracing live drawing, performance, animation, installation, projection, dance film, sculpture, photography and site specificity. They are empowered by the discoveries they continue to unearth between dance and art. They strive to create work that is both and neither dance and art simultaneously – truly symbiotic forms where without each other, the work has no purpose.
Flatline has presented a series of works in festivals, gallery spaces, black box (and white box) theatres, in car parks, alleyways and natural landscapes throughout Australia and Asia.
“Dance and animation are markedly different artforms, but with shared themes and similar ideas underscoring [Flatline’s] work it is already more cohesive than one might imagine.” – Geraldine Higginson, Dance Australia Magazine
“Sketch felt like a true collaboration with equal weight assigned to each discipline. It was a wise decision to place the sketch/visual artist Todd Fuller and sound engineer Mitchell Mollison on the floor, allowing us to see the internal machinations of the piece.” – Vicki Van Hout, FORM Dance Projects Blogger in Residence
