Pacific premiered at Teatro Municipal de Niteroi, Brazil. Adams' work for Pacific investigated the exoticisation of traditional ceremony and the cultural pageantry of the dance rituals of Rio’s famous annual Carnival. Pacific presented a two-sided stage investigation assessing the social boundaries that can occur in the stereotyping of cultural exoticism and gender, circumnavigating around the spectacle of dance rituals as an entry point for social commentary on connectivity, queerness and acceptance.
This exhibition of exquisite photographs by Gregory Lorenzutti will be displayed at Temperance Hall to share this work with Australian audiences. Housed in Temperance Hall's studio upstairs, Gregory's works document the project and capture the transformation and rapture of this cross-cultural collaboration.
