Shifting Possibilities
Piecez's passion for dance led him to a potentially career ending injury. Despite what doctors said, Piecez still pushes the limits of what is possible as a b-boy. Piecez is living proof that we have the power to shift what's possible.

Directed and edited by Raymond Mendoza.

A rich seam of work dealing with cross-cultural reference points. The film contrasts an exhilarating, aerial camera journey with the earth-bound and ritualized step-based movement vocabulary characteristic of Native American culture, locating a single human figure within expansive elemental surroundings, lit by firelight and the flame-red setting of evening sun.

Directed by Marlene Millar and Philip Szporer.

Street Discourse: Interchange of ideas through music and movement - A Discussion
From the collective Jigsaw Sneakers (pictured), this entirely freestyle-based dance video was shot in the inner city of Melbourne. Nothing was planned apart from the location. The dancers came together one Friday afternoon, shot the video within two hours, and scattered before it started to rain.
