FRI 27 OCT, 7:30PM
SAT 28 OCT, 7:30PM

Osaka-based artist Tetsuya Umeda creates dynamic environments with architectural structures, sound and light. His mesmerising and surprising performances produce intricate soundscapes and musical compositions through live experiments with everyday tools and scraps, re-purposed machines and electronics.

Umeda’s site-specific installation for Liveworks employs found domestic objects, transformed from their daily familiarity into a transcendent spectacle of the unexpected. Umeda’s work demonstrates elaborate systems of cause-and-effect, with elements powered by gravity, wind, centrifugal force or falling objects, capturing the moments where ordinary and extraordinary collide.

 

Please note that Ringo requires the audience to stand for the duration of the performance. If you have accessibility concerns, please contact our team at (02) 8571 9111. Ringo may contain loud noises. Latecomers will not be admitted. Duration of 60 minutes.
