The Colloquy of JG and the Girl
‘It was not of her volition that the mind splintered and the world darkened’ – the Girl
This is the story of the bond between a grandmother and her granddaughter - the fondest of memories, the challenges of ripening age and the fractured, yet often hilarious, discourse of the twilight years. Traversing memories from Baghdad in the early 30’s, the high seas, native England and eventually settling in Australia in the 60’s, JG and the Girl invite you to enter their world wrapped in the passing of time. As the Girl traces the narrative of her own experience entwined with JG, she grapples with the inevitable role reversal, beckoning her to embrace her Gran in a whole new light.

The Feather Collector is the mysterious and ethereal vocal project of Brisbane based vocalist and composer, Hannaka. Using a loop pedal and an improvised language, The Feather Collector is a means for transcending the mundane.
Devised as a vehicle to conjure feeling that moves beyond words, the vocalisations begin the breath and on ideas surrounding our cyclic existence. The Feather Collector weaves a web of sound, movement and passion in a not quite music, not quite dance, not quite performance art, not quite drone manner.
Hannaka will perform at
Carnal+BloomThe Feather Collector (performance artist) in collaboration with _f_k_ (audio-visual artist) will be cultivating a unique performance that stretches beyond the conventional borders of music, sound, movement and visual realms. Carnal+Bloom explores the nature of form and language and our perception of these. Germinating from an elemental voice and physique, this alliance of the organic and the electronic, seeks to manifest a ephemeral passage to an ethereal experience.

TransliminalMary-Ann seeks to create a nexus in elements of 18th and 19th century European portrait painting of children and the cultural imperialism of the ‘fairytale’, through transgressing the numinous and the abased. Exploring the position of ‘artist as purveyor of meaning’, her collage works for Transliminal exploit Daubist and Bricolage methods, evolving from her previous work in photomontage.

"In my art practice, I use my own constructed images as vehicles for showing meaning about things that are in my environment and in my head and heart with the intention that others might also connect with them."
"My current work explores the theme of refugees – the trauma they experience due to war, poverty, dislocation, confinement and resettlement. I have called this body of work ‘Refugees/Refuge/Hope’.
Hope being what I think keeps a person strong in the face of adversity. I use colour, form and semi-abstract mark-making and motifs to represent the above."
"This topic is close to my heart as I believe that I can empathise with some of their problems as I am a migrant and some of my experiences run parallel to those experienced by refugees. Having taught refugee children and listened to stories told by refugee families has also helped me in this respect."

An executioner waits patiently in the execution chamber 45 minutes before he conducts his job. He sits and ponders his work and his life waiting, wondering if this task of his is right.
As he ponders this he comes to the realisation that he is unsure. Is he following through with his legally sanctioned task to uphold right and punish those who break the law or is he about to conduct judicial murder?

A street kid from way back Richard is making his transition from the ancient art of street theatre to the stage for the first time. With nonchalance and charisma Richard combines circus, comedy and physical theatre to entertain his audience.
A little bit of a mess in life and on the stage, it will take the help of the entire audience to get this train-wreck of a performance back on track.
A smash hit worldwide as a street performer Richard is often regarded as an original and eccentric performer, respected for both his abilities as a juggler and for what he is willing to say and do within a show - just to get a laugh.
Being his first stage show there aren't any star reviews or quotes to let you know that someone else has a high opinion of him. Unfortunately, you have to develop your own opinion on this guy.

In 2006 I began studies at Adelaide Central School of Art. My interest turned from painting, to drawing and sculpture, and in particular ‘bricolage’. In the visual arts bricolage is defined as the construction or creation of a work from a diverse range of things that happen to be available.
With a lifelong awareness and interest in environmental and ecological issues, I began making pieces using already existing and discarded materials to comment meaningfully on the many relevant global and spiritual issues that particularly interested me.
In addition I found the beauty and elegance of skeletal shapes combined with sometimes incongruous or enigmatic materials imbued a new life into what was essentially death. The results of reinterpreting these bones often became humorous and whimsical.
'bricolage' will be installed at
