6 May 8 May Australia/Melbourne Monster http://yirramboi.net.au/events/triple-bill-monster/ Artist: Josh Pether Nation: Kalkadoon AUS Price ($): 10 - 25 Duration: 70 mins Monster is part of a triple Bill, which includes LLAETH (milk) and MASANHU KONGONYA (weaving of the hatchets). From the dark recesses of the mind the beast within hovers between the real and the imaginary. Suspended between reality and the ephemeral, the body undergoes a transformation creating ‘the other’, The Monster. Combining dance and live art, Joshua Pether, independent choreographer and dancer based in Western Australia, conjures a deeply personal exorcism to distil and embody this moment of transformation and release. Of Kalkadoon heritage, Pether’s work is a reflection of his body politics and heritage, both cultural and spiritual. Monster is his second solo work. The two intertwining cultures of Indigeneity and disability help to shape his practice. Meat Market RMIT School of Art art.school@rmit.edu.au Book
