PRESENTED BY PERFORMANCE SPACE AND CARRIAGEWORKS

Bringing artists and audiences together in new, dynamic and responsive ways, Live Dreams is a series of curated performance events across three nights; DESTROY, RECLAIM, REVEL.

This innovative platform invites artists to present ideas- and works-in-progress, to test them with live audiences. Each night, see first hand into the creative process, get a glimpse into current developments in experimental art, and engage in a conversation about their next steps.

LIVE DREAMS: REVEL brings together 6 innovative artists traversing the landscape of elation. The artists from Sydney, Melbourne and Indonesia delve deeply into unbridled and unapologetic pleasure and joy, feasting on ideas of indulgence and prosperity. Showcasing works in progress the artists create encounters that reverberate feelings of humour, calm, connection, exhilaration and victory. The evening of performance and presentation will explore moments of deep euphoria, showing us that the act of revelry can be the strongest form of dissent. 

 

Ryuichi Fujimura’s humorous, poignant and sincere reflection on a contemporary dancer’s life—where recognition is limited and the reward is small—asks the fundamental question, 'why perform?'. Ande Cunningham’s self-proclamation of trans body euphoria celebrates the transitioning body’s small victories and skirmishes that are in fact, life-saving affirmations. The conversation continues with Deden Bulqini, Sandra Fiona Long and Heliana Sinagas work Love Coach, in which the artists explore how human programming of a robot's mind can emulate and produce the human experience of attachment and love. This exploration of the human/machine relationship is echoed in Sophie Penkethman-Young’s video installation, which unpacks the techno-psychology of waiting online and the calming effect that loading bars, animations and spinning wheels can have on a person. Gary Carsley will perform raucous alternative narratives, wittily and wilfully disrupting established historical accounts and cultural norms. 

LIVE DREAMS: REVEL parades ideas of pleasure as political and delights in dissent, offering us an alternative to the chaos.

Curatorium: Dino Dimitriadis, Hannah Donnelly, Jeff Khan, Anna Tregloan, Sam Watson-Wood
