Event description

Description

Join us for an evening of performance exploring feminist practice, with key historical works by Barbara Campbell and Linda Sproul alongside new commissions by Hannah Donnelly, Embittered Swish and Técha Noble.

Bodies of Evidence exploits and subverts the traditional connection between feminist performance and the body to bring new perspectives that includes transgender, non-binary and indigenous experiences. In dialogue with critically acclaimed works of historical significance, the program of performances will enrich our contemporary view on the work of artists using their body as primary material within a feminist context.

In Fluid Bonding 2017, Embittered Swish will focus on the medicalisation of transgender identities.

Linda Sproul will perform Changing nature, first presented as part of the conference Performing Sexualities at the Institute of Modern Art, Brisbane, in 1994. While in Diane 2017, Técha Noble pays tribute to Diane Torr, whose infamous Man for a day workshops explored the embodiment of masculinity, power and ownership.
