INVITE: TALKING ABOUT THEATRE, POLITICS, ACTION, WHY IT’S IMPORTANT TO UNDER-CUT YOUR ARTFORMS WITH VAN BADHAM (MALTHOUSE) & SAM FOX (HYDRA)

Written by: Sam Fox on August 23, 2012

For our last weekend in Melbourne with¬†Personal Political Physical Challenge¬†we are going to have an open conversation facilitated by Malthouse Theatre’s resident dramaturge Van Badham with Sam Fox (Hydra director), members of the cast, and anyone who wants to join, ask difficult questions or listen in.

We will talk about some of the motivations and characteristics of PPPC, particularly looking at hybrid work, the need for difference in our cultural context and the importance of breaking down or carefully mistreating form in contemporary performance. But we’d also like to talk more broadly about theatre, politics, direct action &/or art action.

2pm this Saturday August 25 in the Malthouse Theatre – Shell Room, free to all. Head to the box office to be directed upstairs.
