LIVEWORKS BY PERFORMANCE SPACE
Performance Space is Australia's leading organisation for the development and presentation of experimental art, supporting artists to fearlessly test ideas, develop ambitious new work and share that work with national and international audiences.
Liveworks 2020 is a radical transformation of Performance Space's award-winning Liveworks Festival of Experimental Art, responding to the turbulence and instability of our current moment through artistic leadership, creative thinking and supported gathering. In 2020 they centre the importance of gatherings and the connections and conversations embedded within them.
It is the perfect expression of not just making something happen. It's making it a Happening.
PYMBLE LADIES COLLEGE
During online learning, Eisteddfod Dance groups were given the task of learning and performing an online virtual performance at home. The happening they created is absolutely incredible.
With over 140 performers and 300 submissions the girls take us on a journey, together through the virtual world. Although they are not physically sharing the stage, they are certainly connected and dancing together as one.
This is a simple idea that takes something that is important to a group of people and turns it into an activity that helps them to connect and create. The outcome that is at the heart of every great Happening.
