Brisbane Festival 2013

We presented Action HeroVictoria Melody and Dan Canham within the Brisbane Festival 2013.

Action Hero presented A Western, a site-responsive piece for a bar which is re-made for each venue. It is an experiment with the relationship between an audience and an event, a re-imagining of everyday landscapes we inhabit. Victoria Melody presented Northern Soul (image below), a one-woman show about Victoria Melody’s attempts at joining in. Her unusual ethnographic approach to performance has found her living with pigeon fanciers for a year and learning to northern soul dance in stranger’s living rooms. Dan Canham presented 30 Cecil Street, a dance-theatre piece made of fragments of memories, of wild nights and long disappeared communities.
