LIVEWORKS ON DEMAND PROGRAM

LIVE FUTURES: KIN-SHIP-MATTER
Tickets $20, concession $15

Curator
Dr Léuli Eshrāghi

This conversation brings together key voices working across performance, politics and cultural restitution to consider the transformative potential of Indigenous knowledge systems and the activation of the collective through gathering. 

How might the renewal and reinstatement of Indigenous knowledge generate ancestral-futurist kinships and possibilities beyond the carceral, the fascist and the hateful? How much might we gain by restoring ceremonial-political gatherings that centre sovereignty in shared processes, shared feasts, shared care for lands, waters and airs? 

Afflicted as we are by the intersecting crises of habitat, disease, race hierarchy and extreme violence, this conversation offers windows into humility and connection. It is inspired by the continuity of freshwater courses despite extractive industries and settler colonies, and of saltwater bodies reaching from Gadigal Country to every shore of the Great Ocean.

LIVE FUTURES: REMAPPING ECOLOGIES
Tickets $20, concession $15

Curator
Holly Williams

As the inevitability of global warming becomes impossible to ignore and human-caused extinctions become widespread, how might the body-centred practices of the deep ecology movement, activist interventions and the work of contemporary artists inform where we go from here? 

How can we reinstate different relationships between humans and the network of animals, organisms, weather and environment that we are inextricably connected to? How can we constructively meet the grief, fear, rage and guilt that marks this time? Where might hope lie?

LIVE FUTURES: REIMAGINING TOUCH
Tickets $20, concession $15

Curator
Dr Zahra Stardust

In an age of skin hunger and physical distancing, how can art reimagine what constitutes intimacy and connection? If our touch is predominantly mediated through sensors, screens and surfaces, what does this mean for the future of radical intimacies?

Artists, sex workers and queer communities are pioneering innovative responses to the global pandemic, including sharing sex-positive public health messaging, mobilising funds for mutual aid and creating COVID-safe experiences of intimacy. Some have engaged new technologies that allow for unique sensory experiences and connections across time and space.

In this panel, artists reimagine touch, intimacy and sexuality at a time of global pandemic, big tech and sexual surveillance. When government solutions are founded upon assumptions of nuclear families, monogamous relationships and heteronormative households, how do we nurture and sustain queer intimacies?  As always, we look to artists for creative, experimental and boundary-pushing practices that take us outside existing social, technological and economic imaginaries.

How do you cope with constant beginnings? Amrita Hepi in conversation with Mish Grigor
Free

Covid has been a time of deep disruption for artists. Venues closed, borders snapped shut, our shows got cancelled, or perhaps worse – rescheduled into an uncertain future. Coping with uncertainty is a given as an artist, but this feels especially cruel. 

Join acclaimed makers Amrita Hepi and Mish Grigor for yet another zoom. One where they discuss what was, what should have been, and hopefully what will be.  They’ll consider the impact of the pandemic on their own practices, and dare to look at a horizon beyond vax targets and border restrictions.

In Perpetuity Screening and Artist Conversation - Ivey Wawn

Working people are, like the dressage horse, cut off from their spontaneity in order to align with the rhythms of a labour process. In this iteration of In Perpetuity Ivey Wawn presents a video work featuring three dancers performing dressage choreography as a metaphor for the pressures of a life subjected to wage labour.

This video will be followed by a conversation between Ivey Wawn and Lizzie Thomson.

LIVE FUTURES: THE INHERITANCE OF THE FUTURE
Tickets: $20, concession $15

Curator
Clothilde Bullen

Bequest technologies—such as keeping places—and other forms of direct action, offer a range of options by and for First Nations peoples to support critically important opportunities for cultural continuity. The increasingly escalated destruction of natural environments, within which First Nations cultural knowledge is embedded, requires us to urgently re-think how these knowledges are retained if access to Country is denied.  

Within urban environments, different technologies must be embedded that support access to disrupted custodianship of Country, in order to create new economic, ideological and social understandings of the place of First Nations peoples. Guests in this conversation will offer the audience a variety of understandings of—and challenges to—accepted connections and histories, and a glimpse of what the new normal could be.

Marianne Nicolson
Jazz Money
