Darebin Arts’ Speakeasy

Filed under: Dance, Gigs, General — site admin @ 2:41 pm

Darebin Arts’ Speakeasy
2016 Program
[MIS]CONCEIVE (17-22 May)
Desert Body Creep (17-22 May)
BLAAQ Catt (17-22 May)

Darebin Arts’ Speakeasy fortifies its reputation as a hub of creative audacity, co-presenting seven inspired productions from 4 – 23 May as part of Next Wave 2016 program.
Extending across dance, theatre and music from emerging and early career artists, the program exemplifies the commitment to social and cultural diversity of Next Wave and Darebin Arts Speakeasy, particularly within the Northcote Town Hall’s strong, historical connectedness to indigenous arts.

“We are thrilled to partner with Next Wave for the third time. Our curatorial focus is centred on powerful, political work, with a strong indigenous thread running through many of the shows. Additionally we wanted to capitalise on our previous successful presentations of contemporary dance, so four of the works are by leading young choreographers and performers”, said 
Darebin Arts Programming Co-ordinator Beau McCafferty.

Following stand out performances across theatre and screen, BlaaQ Catt (17-22 May) is the solo debut from writer and performer Maurial Spearim (We Get It, Redfern Now). In an exploration of hope, longing and connection, this darkly comic story fuses the ancient with the contemporary, bringing two worlds into one. Weaving Gamilaraay language together with song, dance and storytelling, Spearim reflects on the complexities and harsh realities of life for a contemporary, young Aboriginal woman.

In his debut full-length dance-theatre work, [MIS]conceive, (17-22 May) rising performer and choreographer Thomas E.S. Kelly (Vicki Van Hout, Shaun Parker and Company) explodes the misconceptions and prescriptions of what it is to be a young urban Aboriginal person in Australia. Kelly uses a mash-up of traditional and contemporary styles including hip hop, physical percussion and rhythmic cultural pattern to simultaneously reject, reveal and re-educate modern (mis)understandings of Indigeneity.

Desert Body Creep (17-22 May) feeds on the corpse of a post-everything world and sees dancer and choreographer Angela Goh share the stage with a giant gummi worm. Exploring the transition from dead to undead, wriggles and writhes through an hallucinatory landscape, proposing a strategy towards new forms of life.
