Preview Wednesday, 9 May
All shows 6:30pm, with a 12pm relaxed performance on Sunday, 13 May

Two performers, one baby. One life, one choice. Your hosts, Kerensa and Yuhui, are both women of childbearing age. One is a mother. The other is not. Both are acutely aware that single decision has the power to alter the course of one’s entire life.

This compelling live performance slips between the autobiographical and the absurd, the banal and the surreal, the conversational and the theatrical. Amidst chaos and control, restraint and rebellion, a baby watches the performance unfold from his throne. Drawing on their interest in domestic ritual, Diball and Ng-Rodriguez invite you in and offer morsels to share. Partake in their candid response to the pressures of being a good woman, a bad mother, becoming our mothers and what it means to have children. Or not.

 Jupiter Orbiting by Joshua Pether  
Thursday, 10 May 2018
to Sunday, 13 May 2018

8:00 PM - 9:00 PM
Event image
Independent creator and performer of Kalkadoon heritage, Joshua Pether, takes us on a sci-fi adventure that opens up a new world filled with surreal and fantastical realities – questioning perceptions of what is real and what is not.

In his second solo work, Pether combines movement, sound and video to negotiate the hazy boundaries between fantasy and reality, myth and truth. Charting experiences of isolation and distance, this performative dance work negotiates personal identity and body politics. Throughout the piece, performer and audience develop a shared bond that explores perceptions of mental health, our relationship with trauma and our capacity for empathy.

Created and performed by: Joshua Pether
Sound Composer: Daniel von Jenatsch
A Next Wave x PICA co-commission in association with Darebin Arts Speakeasy
