Dancers from prestigious ballet companies, designer garments, exquisite lighting and state-of-the-art filmmaking technology combine in a work-of-art that showcases the extreme athleticism and sublime beauty in dance as never before.
Featuring elite dancers from The Australian Ballet, Bolshoi Theatre, The Royal Ballet, Les Ballets de Monte-Carlo, Queensland Ballet and Projection Dance, ‘missed nuance’ by Niv Novak uses ultra-slow motion photography to ‘slow time’, revealing a mesmerising spectacle of dance movement.
‘Missed Nuance’ is a breathtaking study of the relationship between movement and fabric and the role fashion plays in elevating and inspiring the artistry of dance.
Curated by costume designer Belinda Pieris ‘Missed Nuance’ showcases the talents of leading Australian fashion designers and couturiers including Akira Isogawa, Jason Gretch, Con Ilio, Belinda Pieris, Robyn Black, Gwendolynne and Georgia Chapman.

Missed Nuance’s original score was created by Melbourne-based composer Troy Rogan who has conceived a sound world reflecting the grace and beauty of the stunning visuals. With a tranquil and delicate tone, the music invites listeners to fall trance to the breathtaking splendour of the slow motion medium.
While photography reveals instants of such beauty, ‘missed nuance’ captures all,” says artist Niv Novak.
What a thrill it is to see these amazing dancers captured is such exquisite detail and at a speed that we can see the sheer grit and power that goes into making dance that inspires with its beauty. It is a glimpse at the sublime captured by one who is also an artist and a great supporter of our art.
