Do you remember Jen’s work in 2017?

Last year Performance Space invited you to fall in love at Liveworks, in Jen Jamieson’s one-on-one performance Let’s Make Love. This year, we’ve commissioned Jen to create the love through a series of breathtaking videos about how you can create oxytocin—aka the ‘love hormone’—through giving.

Check out the first video below. And stay tuned as we release the next 3 videos over the coming weeks! Share the love – give to Performance Space.

QUEER DEVELOPMENT PROGRAM: STEPHEN CUMMINS RESIDENCY ANNOUNCED!

Posted on: March 8th, 2018

After an unprecedented response to our call for applications, Performance Space is excited to announce the recipient of our Queer Development Program: Stephen Cummins Residency.

Sydney-based writer, director and performance maker, Ian Sinclair, will spend two-weeks at PACT Centre for Emerging Artists developing his new work Intimate Objects for the Symbiocene. This multimedia solo performance will explore the interconnections between personal histories and the global consequences of climate change, with the artist creating three speculative narratives that blur the bounds of fact, fiction and queer ecology.

The two-week residency from the 20th to the 29th of March provides an exciting opportunity for an artist to develop a new performance work in a supportive environment and expand the conceptual underpinnings of their practice. The opportunity for both emerging and established artists includes artistic mentorship, production support and curatorial feedback.
