Roslyn Orlando (Melbourne)
Evasion Score II
Evasion Score II is the second in a series of graphic scores that propose ways of using the voice to evade detection from domestic smart speakers. The scores use various experimental vocal techniques to obfuscate words and prevent networked speakers from 'listening' to and understanding speech. For Live Dreams, Roslyn will present the graphic score and perform a ‘choral reading’.

MindsEye Collective (Sydney)
Mystery Call is a participatory dance work that connects people near and far. How can our dancing be accessed through an experience of your own body, the history of our bodies and a relationship to the collective body isolated during this time? Mystery Call utilises a creative conversation to build an inclusive performance which is heard and experientially embodied instead of being visually seen.

Physical sensation of Moshi-Moshi
Yuta Hagiwara and his company Kamome Machine started 'Telephone Theater' from 2020 which uses phone call and the audience connect with performer 1on1. In this performance series, the word 'Moshi-Moshi' plays a very important role which is not only a greeting on the telephone but also a physical sensation. This word has various meanings. For example, call and response, makes an intimate feeling, 'Hello', 'Can you hear me?', 'I'm here', 'Help me', 'I accept you', 'I trust you' and so on. In this presentation, they will try to make 'a physical connection' with the word Moshi-Moshi with an audience who are non-native Japanese speaker.
Jarunun "Jaa" Phantachat (Thailand)
I Say Mingalaba, You Say Goodbye
A memoir and journey of Jarunun ‘Jaa’ Phantachat, a Thai theatre director who so long wanted to collaborate with Myanmar artists. Unfortunately, two countries were couped.
In 2020, global events created enormous instability and uncertainty for experimental practice. In response, Performance Space created Live Dreams, a new platform for artists to share works-in-progress and ideas in development in a dynamic and responsive environment. Taking place both in physical space and online, Live Dreams enables artists and audiences to continue connecting with each other across borders and geographic space. Live Dreams has offered us an exciting glimpse into current developments in experimental art, and has been a crucible for experimentation and conversation.
Performance Space has expanded this program as part of Liveworks 2021, inviting four Guest Curators from across the Asia-Pacific to theme each stream with powerful provocations as we navigate the turbulence of our current moment.
All LIVE DREAMS events will be live streamed on Vimeo, and embedded on our website. All the events in the LIVE DREAMS Series will be available on demand for 7 days after they air, through our digital experimental art channel LIVE ON-THE-LINE.
