LIVE DREAMS // The Seeping Woman
PRESENTED BY PERFORMANCE SPACE AND CARRIAGEWORKS
The Seeping Woman
On one chair sits a woman staring into a glass with something black inside. The glass seeps water. Her body looks restful at first glance but her fingers, lips and legs are agitated. She wants to leave but can’t.
Intimacy, proximity, and the lens are taken here as metaphor and reality. How can live, recorded, online and warm flesh worlds co-exist under and via scrutiny of the lens? How can a choreographic approach form a marriage in-between?
We experiment with rituals and markers of non-linear simultaneous time.

As part of Live works CURATED BY PERFORMANCE SPACE GUEST CO-ARTISTIC DIRECTORS ROSIE DENNIS AND DANIEL MUDIE CUNNINGHAM
In its 6th season, with a cult following and a beloved intimacy with artists practice and process, Performance Space and Carriageworks are thrilled to present LIVE DREAMS May 2023. Taking place both in physical space and online, come and get a glimpse at the future of experimental art from across the Asia Pacific.
As Performance Space gears up to celebrate its 40th anniversary, LIVE DREAMS is a series of curated performance events across three nights: BIRTHS, DEATHS and MARRIAGES. Taking its theme from the government registry that records significant life events, curators Rosie Dennis and Daniel Mudie Cunningham have selected works that speak to the rituals and markers of time as they shape a diverse spectrum of lived experience and the human condition.
This innovative platform allows the artists to present ideas- and works-in-progress, so you can see first hand into the creative process, getting a glimpse into current developments in experimental art, and engage in a conversation about their next steps.
Honouring the rituals and markers of time, works will consider collaboration and togetherness, companionship and commitment.
