Art That Moves: Performance Art on the North Side

Performance Art on the North Side
Saturday 4 March, 6.30pm
Tickets $55 / $40 WAC Members / $30 Concession

Now in its third year electrifying the community, Art That Moves offers another amazingly varied programme, encompassing music, comedy, improvisation, muscle stimulation, plant music and puppetry. This unique event introduces you to mind blowing new concepts in art and perception.

Hosting the evening will be comic, clown doctor and writer Lou Pollard; she gets paid to dress up and act like a goose and has performed across Australia and the Middle East. Currently gearing up for her new solo comedy show at the Sydney Comedy Festival, Lou will walk us through the quirky building where we encounter the other performers including;

  • the ever popular Michaela Davies, this year with Tim Bruniges using electric muscle stimulation bypassing conditioned responses to both obstruct and extend human capabilities and musical possibilities. Literally wired for sound!!!
  • painter Judith White and cellist Rachel Scott bringing their unique collaboration, The Painted Bach, to the Centre. Judith will create a multi-paneled painting in response to selected cello music played by Rachel on her 18th century instrument. Their last performance was in Perth for the 2016 City of Perth Winter Arts Festival.
  • interdisciplinary artist Guillermo Batiz whose practice encompasses music and sound design, film, immersive installation, poetry and philosophy. His Plant Symphony was recently experienced at the Wollongong Art Gallery. Do plants make music?
  • an intimate shadow play that has been performed internationally by the Sydney Puppet Theatre, co-founders of the Australian Puppet Centre and longtime directors of the Rocks Puppet Cottage.

This year Art That Moves will have its own wine and beer bar under the Marquee on the Centre’s lawn. Delicious finger food is included in the cover price.
