Performance Space to celebrate 30th with 12-day festival

Sydney’s Performance Space is set to celebrate its 30th anniversary with a 12-day festival titled You’re History.

The agency for interdisciplinary arts will showcase a series of performances across multiple mediums including video instalations, a live pop-up TV broadcast, contemporary theatre and dance performances at Carriageworks.

See below for a brief overview of each showcase.

'The Director's Cuts'
30 years of ideas: A timeline of Performance Space’s colourful 30 year history interpreted by nine past Directors who recount their favourite moments with creative flair.

'This is Barbara Cleveland'
The future of performance: a new video work exhibited internationally following Brown Council as they re-trace the steps of enigmatic 70’s Australian feminist artist, Barbara Cleveland on her mythical voyage across Europe and the US.

'Tele Visions'
Live pop-up TV broadcast, different every night, to celebrate the end of analogue TV; the most dominant media platform of the last sixty years.

'Brief Synopsis'
A contemporary theatre masterpiece: Nigel Kellaway sets the scene with a powerful photography installation from esteemed artist, Heidrun Löhr, which is accompanied by an aural backdrop of a live classical music performance infused with crisp elements of modernity.

'Box of Birds'
This is Carriageworks as you’ve never seen it before: performers are spectacularly placed at varying heights within the public space of Carriageworks as they expressively exchange with the backdrop of Anne Ferran’s acclaimed photographic trilogy of 1940’s psychiatric patients.

'd a n s e'
An intimate opportunity to experience world-class dance: Rosalind Crisp’s third installment of her culmination of eight years of work; d a n s e challenges the very way we perceive what dance is. Her trio of international dancers incorporate a stripped-back and volatile set of choreographic principles which guide the way movement is produced by the dancer, rather than focusing on the memorisation of set movements.

'30 Ways With Time And Space'
Celebrating 30 years, 30 ways: Leading Australian artist, Agatha Gothe-Snape will transform the public space of Carriageworks into a kaleidoscope of activity, celebrating some of Australia’s best performance artists as they interact with a series of modular plinths and platforms over the course of the festival. Some of the highlights from the 30 works include Paul Capsis, Mike Parr, Lauren Brincat & Bree van Reyk, John Rose & Lucas Abela, and Applespiel.
