Radial by Back to Back Theatre

Radial is a portrait of our community in motion.

Filmed on a circular camera track and led by members of the internationally acclaimed Back to Back Theatre ensemble, this playful experimental short film puts the people of Fringe centre-frame.

Made via a process of live improvisation, each sweeping swing of the Radial camera documents from all angles the beautiful idiosyncrasies of our people, their bodies, the communities they represent and the landscapes they inhabit.

Back to Back Theatre have filmed Radial all over the world, including in Berlin, Dundee and Geelong, and now it’s time to turn the camera on Melbourne Fringe. From intimate depictions of individual artists to the massed swell of bodies in full flight on the streets of Stonnington, Radial is our community, in motion.

12 artists from Fringes past and present take to the streets around Prahran – with its thumping nightlife and long history of supporting diverse communities – in this celebration of clubbing culture, conceived, filmed and created over the 18 days of the Fringe Festival.
