A Food for Thought event by the Art, Social and Spatial Practice Research Cluster curated by Toby Juliff (VCA Art) and Robert Walton (VCA Theatre)
The subject of haunting – and that of its bedfellows ‘spectres’ ‘ghosts’ and the Gothic imaginary – continues to fascinate us. But we’re now more accustomed to talking about ‘haunting’ as a way of thinking about and practicing the past, present and future. Moving beyond the white bed sheet and the g-g-g-ghosts of Scooby Do this research performance vocalises, enacts, re-enacts, offers critique, conjures and exorcises the haunting of contemporary theatre, fine art and cultural performance. We welcome your participation.
Participants, respondents, discussants and exorcists for the evening include: Alice Hui-Sheng Chang (experimental vocal artist), Robert Walton (VCA Theatre), Nigel Brown (sound artist), Toby Juliff (VCA Fine Art), Jason Maling (artist), Edward Colless (VCA Fine Art, Head of Critical and Theoretical Studies), Sophie Knezic (VCA Fine Art and CATS).
When: Tuesday 16 June 2015. 5:30-7:30pm
Where: Art Auditorium, Dodds Street, Victorian College of the Arts, Southbank
