Myriad collective presents Transtravaganza
September 16, 2017 @ 7:00 pm - September 17, 2017 @ 7:00 pm UTC+10
Presented by myriad collective in collaboration with Footscray Community Arts Centre & Melbourne Fringe festival.
TRANSTRAVAGANZA offers a sample platter of new work by five of Melbourne’s most talented trans and gender diverse artists. First, whet your appetite with Elija Montgomery’s participatory photographic work exploring monstrosity and humanity. Then, sink your teeth into Raina Peterson’s contemporary Indian dance performance that traverses liminal genders in Hindu art and culture. Get your fill of absurdist theatre with Dove Quinn and Leon Andon’s physical theatre adaptation of Eugene Ionesco’s The Chairs. Finally, cleanse your palate with Luca Lovejoy’s thoughtful and charming cabaret performance, before finishing off with Yelris’ multi-sensory buffet of non-binary electro-poetica beats, words, and Asian gender bending visuals.
