Re-enact, repeat, reiterate, re-perform – a practitioner’s chat

Join us for an afternoon’s discussion about re-enactment and related practices at Westspace, Melbourne Saturday 9 July 2-4 pm

If you make work or think about work that connects with re-enactment, repetition, reiteration and re-performance, or you’re just curious, please come along.

Last November in Brisbane a group of artists, curators and academics spent an afternoon talking re-enactment, repetition and the like as part of an art history conference (more about that in an earlier post on this blog). Several of us will be in Melbourne to listen in at PSi#22, the international performance studies conference and we plan a follow-up chat to discuss our work further, mull over new thoughts and generally reflect on these ideas as we work with them in our practices. We welcome new participants to our conversation.

Waiting To Turn Into Puzzles – film & music Wed 25 June 2008

An evening of music and film presented by Ensemble Offspring, Wed 25 June 2008 at the Chauvel, Paddington.

Waiting To Turn Into Puzzles is a new super 8 film work by Louise Curham featuring hand processed and hand-made film. Frames from the film have been scanned and printed, literally the ground for a new composition by Melbourne composer David Young for a performance by Sydney’s fabulous Ensemble Offspring.

‘WTTP is a cinematic experience with live music. Curham’s hand-processed, etched and looped super 8 films are simultaneously an intense visual experience and music notation for Ensemble Offspring. David Young ascribes a vocabulary of musical gestures to the textures, colours and shapes of the projections through a process of composition that explores the continuum between improvisation and notated music. David’s music has been likened to the ‘aural equivalent of seeing a world in a grain of sand’.

The evening commences with drinks in the Chauvel foyer with a screening of Bill Morrison’s ‘Light is Calling’ and is followed by more drinks in the Chauvel foyer.
