Australian dancer and choreographer Atlanta Eke brings to us Wetware, a performance concerned with time travel. The work, a response to the RMIT Design Hub’s Occupied exhibition and now further developed for MPavilion, imagines that architects from 2050 have travelled back in time via the digital universe to share a dystopian tale from a near future; a drowned world where land-based life has returned to the sea.
The performance of Wetware is followed by a related panel discussion entitled ‘The architecture of display: Scenography as an agent for performance and design’, and includes such noteworthy participants as Atlanta Eke herself, Fleur Watson of RMIT Design Hub, David Neustein, and Grace Mortlock of Otherothers. Come to our place in the Queen Victoria Gardens for Atlanta Eke’s performance and stick around for the talk!
