Coming up at Gertrude Glasshouse | Performance Review and Gertrude present Contact High






Performance Review and Gertrude Present: Contact High. Curated by Anador Walsh

Performance Nights | 20 and 27 January, 6-8pm. Residency Dates | 10 – 28 January 2022

In line with Gertrude’s commitment to supporting curatorial practice and the presentation of ambitious projects and public outcomes, the remainder of the month of January will be dedicated to Contact High, a Performance Review takeover of Gertrude Glasshouse.
Coming out of a two year period where performance was primarily engaged with through the intermediaries of phone and laptop screens, Contact High seeks to emphasise that which is lost through digital dissemination: action and dialogue, movement and sweat, laboured breath and foot falls, audiences and performers, dancers and spectators, dramaturgy and scores.
Over the course of three weeks, six Naarm based artists will be in residence at Gertrude Glasshouse; rehearsing, workshopping and developing new or existing performance works. This residency will culminate in the public presentation of these works across two performance nights on Thursday 20 January and Thursday 27 January.
Contact High is interested in the transference that occurs between performers and audiences in the gallery and is a celebration of our newly regained ability to be together, performing and spectating.
Exhibiting Artists: Arini Byng, Rebecca Jensen, Marcus McKenzie, Sean Miles, Alexander Powers and Ari Tampubolon.
Music: Amrita Hepi.
Design: New Association.
