After premiering at Next Wave Festival 2016, Dan McCabe’s Shadows on the hill will be a part of WA’s Disrupted – Festival of Ideas, running on Sat 30 Jul and Sun 31 Jul. This year’s theme is Subject to Change, and other participants include Next Wave Festival alumna, Loren Kronemyer (Pony Express), Waleed Aly, Dr Susan Carland, June Oscar & Victoria Laurie and Kevin Vinsen.
As housing prices in major cities continue to climb, the Australian dream of owning a suburban home becomes an even bigger mountain to conquer. But is it worth the hike? Making an artist designed tent his home, Perth-based artist Dan McCabe questions how we might disrupt and mitigate suburban aspiration and gentrification, turning this temporary engagement with the urban landscape into an opportunity for spontaneous discussion with passers-by.
