2018 Programmed artists:
GARETH FOX // PRELEST // A combination of generative visuals and droning audio, promoting the contemplation of meaning through progressive sensory overload.
SCOTT WINGS AND THE STEP KIDS // STEPDAD THE MUSICAL // Experimenting in comedy, musical theatre and site specific performance, Stepdad The Musical is an invite to my home for dinner, that’s my mum, that’s my brother, and that is my, um, stepdad I guess.
THE CONTINGENT // Nine performers. One field. Infinite possibilities. A long-form physical theatre ensemble improvisation where nothing is scripted, and everything is possible. Dare to experience The Contingent.
LOUISE MORRIS // ...PIECES OF SILVER // We continue to count dead women. Each piece of silver tarnishes the land. We are wrapped in a modality of survival. Given as a promise- totemic as protection- silver is a metal in eternal transition.
LOU FOURIE // HOME BODY 2.0 // Sculptural objects materialize as a near future intimate home interior environment designed to facilitate daily self-care routines.
BIANCA LYLA CLIFFORD // THE ALEPH // The constellation of bodies, dirt and tea mirrors itself into time infinity, new faces seem older this time but recognised before, old acquaintances bring new knowledge, fact is rewritten and the story goes on and on.
LUNA MROZIC GAWLER // CUT 31 // This is how we shed, this is how we quiet, this is how we make kin. Let me tell you how we died.
EDWARD WILLOUGHBY // OBSERVER'S PARADOX // Seen but not heard; heard but not seen. Part theatre and part sound work, ‘Observer’s Paradox’ places stage fright at centre stage in a cumulative revelation of a private, inner song.
THE CONVOY // PUREREHUA // Light Indivisible // Spirals, Spin, Spin
DANI-ELA KAYLER // DESQUAMATE // Desquamate - to make space, to stretch, to grow, to reveal new layers, to renew ourselves....we shed.
SKYE GELLMANN // END GRAIN INSTALLATIONS // End Grain Installations is a sculptural performance by artist Skye Gellmann that contemplates our relationship to timbers and local landscape. Drawing on acrobatics, movement and practice-based performance, we see the artist on the ground and also in the air. A hypnotic space is carved out where the mechanical becomes emotional.
NIKKI EDGAR // RIBBONS // Presenting a musical visual art performance, 'Ribbons' welcomes the audience to make themselves comfortable and relax into an interactive experience. This performance will take the audience through the creative process of constructing, performing and responding to graphic scores. You can either sit back and relax, or get involved.
SJ FINCH // ORACLE BONES 3 甲骨 三: LIM SECRETS 林 秘密 // Oracle Bones were part of the first library in China – ox bones and turtle shells used for pyromancy – characters would be carved on the bones, and then burnt, cracking and revealing hidden details of the future – establish identity, meaning and providence to be relations to the future made possible through materials of the earth.
ZAN GRIFFITHS // REIMAGINING PUBLIC SPACE ONE LONE INTERVENTION AT A TIME // Big ideas performed on a miniature scale...this carnivalesque artist performs her Masters work through puppetry.
