Suspiria de Profundis Creative Development

Tue 19 - Sun 24 Mar, Mon 25 - Fri 29 Mar | Artist Development

Little Ones Theatre (VIC)

Suspiria will be a theatrical exploration of terror, race, dance, giallo horror and genre through a queer and culturally diverse lens. The work will be created by queer and culturally diverse artists and will explore how horror, queerness and sexuality intersect in a piece of choreographic story telling or “physical theatre”.

Suspiria is a contemporary fairy tale, playing on Jungian philosophy and collective experiences of terror through body horror and dance. It is an atmospheric piece that creeps under the skin because it explores how the unknown creates fear within groups who want to maintain control and power over an evironment. It is cautionary and magical- using archetypal characters and symbols so that it is universal and can be applied to a variety of contexts- it is, for me, a story about how the unknown terrors of our minds can manifest in our societies and the places we are supposed to feel most safe (in this case, a highly regarded dance school).

FEED

12 - 13 April | Event

Nat Grant (VIC)

Nat Grant presents FEED: a 45 minute solo performance for drums and feedback which uses inventive, transformative audio and lighting design to layer acoustic drumming with digital effects. The drums will be recorded and played back in real time, fed through a multi channel speaker system. Presented in 360 degrees in the Mechanics Institute theatre – feel free move around, sit, or lie down (BYO cushion) and let the sounds weave their way around you.

Paying the rent: this event occurs on stolen land and 5% from all tickets sold will be donated to WAR: Warriors of the Aboriginal Resistance: a collective of young Aboriginal people committed to the cause of decolonization and the philosophy of Aboriginal nationalism – resistance and revival, and the amplification of community voices through protest.
