Arts House in association with Aphids presentTHRASHING WITHOUT LOOKING“It provoked all sorts of thoughts about the modes of disembodied communication we engage in now---televisual, internet---how trust and agency are still called upon and how intense and liberating is the sense of touch…I didn’t want to leave.” Fiona McGregor, Real TimeThrashing Without Looking is an experiential work combining live performance and live cinema. This is a textured and disorientating journey through loneliness, frenzy, banality and cliche.Examining the intimate tension and texture of human interactions, Thrashing Without Looking is a collaborative work by Elizabeth Dunn, Lara Thoms, Martyn Coutts, Tristan Meecham and Willoh S.Weiland with sound artist Alan Nguyen, all cross-disciplinary artists working at the intersection of performance and technology.Navigating moments of confusion, anticipation and exhilaration, Thrashing Without Looking is a playful provocation of solitude and crowd dynamics, saturating the senses and challenging personal experiences of trust, intimacy and comfort.www.aphids.netThrashing Without Looking has been supported by the Australian Government through the Australia Council, its arts funding and advisory body and was developed at Arts House with the support of CultureLAB and through Liveworks at Performance Space in 2010.Times: 7pm, 8pm & 9pmDuration: 30 minutesNotes: Bookings essential.
