MEETING MINUTES – this is where our heads are at

Maya Dance Theatre (Singapore)

Since settling in Melbourne, we’ve formed Collapse Collective – Girls Do Art Good. Here’s a sample of what happens at meetings.


Sarah’s Ten Minutes of Meeting Minutes:



I saw a play that I didn’ t write a review of, but during the last election, I had a

fight with Craig, he said I’m a journalist now, I was like, shut up Craig, the herald

Many things happened in Manila this September with the Sipat Lawin Ensemble and a bunch of young Australians, mostly connected through the You Are Here Festival, and all brought together by the ineffable theatre-maker and producer David Finnigan.

Video Trailer for Hourglass

Maya Dance Theatre (Singapore)

“Saturday night, out in Bendigo, I was a bit shocked for a couple of reasons..

1) I saw Hourglass, one of the best live shows EVER, and,

2) Only a handful of people were there.”- Megan Spencer

“The tonal range of a whirly is limited but it was intriguing to see how the sounds were created. The computer manipulation was subtle and lingered after the instrument stopped. Kaur’s multi-projection of watery ripples was our first introduction to the black chiffon screen in this short, atmospheric mood piece.” – RealTime, Jacques Sodell

Here’s some documentation from MUAC in Mexico. Also, Nicole Canham, AD won an Art Music Award for Best performer with Hourglass so I reckon we should show her off again : )

Manila Road Movie

Maya Dance Theatre (Singapore)

A rowdy collection of Australian artists made our way to Quezon City, Manila in September on our own shoestring budgets to take part in a show, Love Not Yet a Musical! by the Sipat Lawin Ensemble. (That’s a whole other thing, and wow was it a thing!) While there, I did another iteration of my truck series: this time the Manila Road Movie. In a small truck, transformed into a mobile camera obscura, we set off to explore the streets of Quezon City.

The Shanghai Biennale Fiasco

So, Sarah Kaur was in Shanghai. For I, along with Swiss artist Auréle Ferrier, were invited to present a project in Chinese media artist Hu Jieming’s space in the Shanghai Bienale. This project never saw the light of day, or even the infra-red light that was the feature of Hu Jieming’s modified shipping container – making it into a ‘black box’ exhibition space.
