This August, Brisbane’s Metro Arts presents Slipstream, a festival of time-based art. With a focus on process and experimentation, Slipstream enters exciting new territories where the boundaries between artists and audiences, performance and visual art, the present and the future blur and disappear. Next Wave alumni on the bill include:
Liesel Zink (Next Wave Festival 2012) with her new work The Stance, a site-specific durational dance and sound work performed in large and expansive public spaces.
Mish Grigor (post, Next Wave Festival 2008) with a creative development/showing of Talk, an account of what happens when you start talking about sex with your family.
M’ck McKeague and Nathan Stoneham (Next Wave Festival 2014) team up again, this time with Matt Seery for a development of NEVERLAND (well, this is embarrassing), which re-imagines the fantasy land that J.M. Barrie created for Peter and Wendy as a late ’90s/early ’00s teen bedroom.
Joseph Breikers (Next Wave Festival 2008 and 2010) with Joke Trading, drawing on the verbal tradition of humour and the act of joke telling as a site of social exchange and leisure.
