TEMPERANCE HALL
MELBOURNE FRINGE PROGRAM

Temperance Hall becomes a hub for experimental choreography and performance for the 2019 Melbourne Fringe Festival

This September, Temperance Hall  presents a Melbourne Fringe program of new works by artists Deanne Butterworth, Alice Will Caroline with Mark Wilson, Rachael Wisby and Shelley Lasica.

Curated by Temperance Hall Artistic Director, Phillip Adams, the program places high calibre emerging and established artists side by side, from recent Victorian College of the Arts Dance graduate Rachael Wisby (a performer in Adams’ Glory, Dance Massive 2019) to esteemed choreographer of 30+ years’ experience, Shelley Lasica (Solos for Other People, Dance Massive 2015).

Discounted Evening Passes are available for those seeing two performances in a night.  Temperance Hall’s atmospheric bar on the first floor will be open throughout the season, so audiences can enjoy intermission and see as many performances as they desire.

THU 12, FRI 13 AND SAT 14 SEPTEMBER

6:30pm – Deanne Butterworth | Group Furniture
Group Furniture is obsessed with repeats. Using French composer and pianist Erik Satie’s Vexations and Furniture Music mixed with an episode of I've Got A Secret from 1960s American TV as its points of departure, Group Furniture questions endurance, spectatorship, and value.

8:00pm – Alice Will Caroline with Mark Wilson | Doors Shut
Three collaborators are stuck in a moment and they can't get out of it. Alice, Will and Caroline have died. In Hell, they must take a long hard introspective look at themselves. Hell is a play acted by dancers with you in the audience.

THU 19, FRI 20 AND SAT 21 SEPTEMBER

6:30pm – Rachael Wisby | Please Do Not Move
Please Do Not Move un-hierarchises the body in relation to its environment by blurring the lines between insideandoutside, placeandbody. Caught in the linguistic nightmare of intellectualism the body attempts to define an escape plan through sequences of fiction and narrative.

CANCELLED
Due to unforeseen circumstances, this performance will no longer be presented.

8:00pm – Lee Osmond | Baby Boy
Lee is dancing. Childhood memories unfold into bodily confusion, ambiguity, drag and campy theatrics. Lee continues to mix, unpick and repair modes of moving, exploring the lived experience of Queerness through the body as an empathetic pathway into chaos, loss and play, unaware of the inevitable final eruption.

THU 26, FRI 27 AND SAT 28 SEPTEMBER

6:30pm – Shelley Lasica | If I Don’t Understand You
If I Don’t Understand You attempts to decipher how we are with others; forever separate and inseparable in the world. Negotiating the dance between the hopeful desire to be understood and the potential disaster of misunderstanding, the performance recognises the intrinsic indefinitive and slippery nature of choreography.
