It's time for another exciting Quarterbred fortnight! This October we're pleased to present the following events and artists in residence...
17 OCT : BUNHEADS & MONTHLY FRIEND #3
3PM - 5PM
BunHeads is an experimental exhibition preoccupied with hair and its daily management.
From 3pm Saturday, October 17th, PACT will be operating as a weird kind of hairdressers, with resident Hairdresser Emma Michaelis doing what she does best, and putting several models hair up into a specially selected group of buns, as selected by the Quarterbred BunHeads curators Tim Maybury and Jade Markham.
with: SIRENS playing music all afternoon, live video projections of close up's of the hair being coiffed as it happens.
BunHeads is a companion event happening just before the performance afternoon, 'Monthly Friend' commences at 5pm.
Because everyone loves a bun.
MONTHLY FRIEND #3 : DEAD OR ALIVE
Monthly Friend is a performance event curated by the Bake Sale for Art team.
The author is dead.
The aura is dead.
The critic is dead.
God is dead.
Theatre is dead.
Art is dead.
But hey, let’s not get overly maudlin. The theme for this Monthly Friend, ‘Dead or Alive’, questions our conception of how ideas, forms, texts and spaces may ‘live’ or ‘die’. Are these bold proclamations of death premature? (The author is still very much alive in mainstream theatre and literature, at least.) And what is the flipside of death? When the author dies the audience becomes alive, and that ain’t so bad is it? Monthly Friend October also celebrates the merging of live and not-live forms. Contemporary arts need not these distinctions! So ah, let’s all take a leaf out of George Romero’s book and let the dead live again. And let the living dead suck the brains out of the living, so that the living die and eventually become the living dead and go out looking for more living. Hope to see you there.
Love Bake Sale for Art.
