Featuring the work of four emerging performace artists this event will explore themes of embodied exaggeration, character creation, and the flimsy boundaries between the personal, the cultural, and the creative. Challenging our assumptions about what it means to 'draw', M. Lohrum will use her whole body as her stylus to create an in situ work. Also using herself as both instrument and material, Kaitlyn Walker-Stewart uses drag, set design, costume and sound to explore the slippage between performer and performed. Campbell McConnell and his backing band will also look to the interplay of pop culture and identity to address the idiosyncrasies of both through costume, music and absurdist humour. Sophie Popper's work continues the theme of reflecting on exaggerated lives and the too-pat campiness of constructed identity through the use of pun filled narratives peopled with invented characters.
This promises be an action-packed, laughter-filled and thought provoking evening of eclectic responses to the artistic, the cultural and the personal.
