The Museum of Contemporary Art Australia has recently commissioned a new project by Japanese-born, Sydney based artist Hiromi Tango entitled Dance, an immersive environment for the Jackson Bella Room in the National Centre for Creative Learning (NCCL). Hiromi’s installation is a colourful and playful interactive learning environment for people with intellectual disabilities. CREATIVEMOVE was pleased to work with Hiromi and the MCA team to realise this project.

Dance is an immersive environment with soft forms growing up walls and across the floor and ceiling. The artist will be actively engaged in the creation and ongoing development of Dance over the twelve month period. Bella Program participants are encouraged to contribute to the evolution of the space through the creation of soft sculptural elements and the artist is keen to develop performance and movement-based activities. Participants are also able to explore the artwork through touch-screens incorporated into sculptural components, creating an interface that makes technology more personal, linking language and social interaction. Dance will be in place until March 2014.

The MCA Bella Program was established in 1993 through the generosity of MCA patrons, the late Dr Edward Jackson AM and Mrs Cynthia Jackson AM, and the Jackson family, in memory of their late daughter and sister Belinda.
