6am at the Garage presents: Projections of Dance
Tom Cushing | On 10, Oct 2015
6am at the Garage is bringing cinematic grandeur to alternative dance music with their Projections of Dance film series at the iconic Astor Theatre. The media collective has developed an eclectic but cohesive program of electronic music cinema that mixes together fiction, documentary and concert films.
The program opens on October 20th with Berlin Calling, a German tragicomedy centered around the drug-induced institutionalization of DJ Ickarus, played by Paul Kalkbrenner. Kalkbrenner also composed the filmâ€™s propulsive techno soundtrack, which includes the platinum hit Sky & Sand.
The film will be projected at the recently saved Astor Theatre in St Kilda, an art-deco marvel that boasts a multi-level cinema, state of the art sound system and an old world opulence. The last single screen cinema of its kind in continual operation in Melbourne, The Astor Theatre plays double features of classic, cult and new release films for single session prices.
As part of their mission to spread their passion for alternative dance music, 6am at the Garage releases reviews, podcasts and interviews from their website. Through their side project Innocuous they also host regular parties, having just recently celebrated their first birthday party with a massive blowout at Hugs & Kisses.
The collective has lined up two more films for the current Astor calendar: LCD Soundsystemâ€™s swan song Shut Up and Play the Hits and Eden, the 2014 film about the birth of the French touch genre.
Bringing together an exciting new collective, a legendary cinema and scene-defining electronic music, Projections of Dance is promising to be a thrilling event.
