Over two weeks of programmed performances, six artists from diverse practices and unique perspectives will push the comfort zone and take us to the Fringe.
“Temperance Hall gives license to thrill in this year’s Melbourne Fringe. A double bill of extra queerordinary works by choreographers Kady Mansour & Michaela Tancheff, and Gabriella Imrichova. These performances offer fierce commentary on gender, from briny amusement drawn out from the trashy mundane, to highbrow manifesto of dunny-wall-graffiti-art performance. Yes please.”
Artistic Director, Phillip Adams
Gabriella Imrichova presents no destination, an-ongoing-forever-never-ending attempt to parallel a queer desire for becoming unlocatable/illegible via one body, many tools, and objects. Held together by some dry ass humour, the body is unsettlingly collaged, deconstructed, and then thrown to the wayside to die
TWO WOMEN ENTER THE TOILET CUBICLE
Kady Mansour & Michaela Tancheff
Kady Mansour & Michaela Tancheff present Two Women Enter the Toilet Cubicle. Everybody wants to change the world, but nobody wants to change the toilet paper roll.
