Performature : Performateur

29 March 2019 18:00

Actions & Performances #1 : Friday 29 March 6-8pm Actions & Performances #2 : Saturday 30 March 3-5pm Actions & Performances #3 : Sunday 31 March 12-2pm

Venue: Articulate Project Space 497 Parramatta Rd, Leichhardt, Sydney, Australia.

Conceived and led by WeiZen Ho, a collective of installation, sound and performing artists will explore ways of extending their visual and performance boundaries, spatially and conceptually. In this process they will consider reformulating the language/vocabulary that has been built up around their practices over time. The provocation is to identify and play with the concept of “performature and performateur”, investigating how those terms could shift their approach towards performance-devising.

installation artists: Sue Callanan, Margaret Roberts, Kirtika Kain; performing artists: WeiZen Ho, Alan Schacher, Phillip Mills, Ryuichi Fujimura, Stella Chen, Oliver Damian, Nikki Heywood; musicians: Laura Altman, Phillipa Murphy-Haste, Peter Farrar, Rhys Mottley, Romy Caen, Luiz Gabriel Gubeissi, Melanie Eden; film artist: Hina Mir; The collective mix changes, expanding and contracting over the course of the whole week.
