AUGUST: ‘(DE)GHOSTING THE ARCHIVE; PUBLISHED BY CARRIAGEWORKS JOURNAL



Was a privilege to write about Kaz Therese's recent show 'Sleeplessness' a few weeks ago. Thank you to Carriageworks Journal for publishing this essay."Sleeplessness invokes many such questions around what it means to inhabit a traumatised and classed body. How can theatre and institutions be reworked and rewritten for these needs? These are persistent questions that the work is attempting to address through particular (in)formal devices – a means to redetermine the very structure of theatre as an alternative to a format, which is arguably engineered for the linear, teleological European patriarchal Master-narrative, underpinned by the cultural myth of having-it-together –an inherited format we still revere all too disproportionately to other modes of knowledge production.To perform one’s disrupted lineage of subalternity against the received template, as Kaz does, demands an ethical under-working of performance – potentially leading towards a prescient, bodily-led process of feeling over form. For rather than surrendering to the professional dictates or traditions of this tendency to contort one’s voice, corporeality, and identity, Therese and director Anthea Williams have retrofitted drama to work for them. An approach made apparent when Kaz interludes: “[Stage Manager] Anastasia is gonna help me tell the story. They have my back. Anastasia will operate the show and when I don’t want to talk about something they will sort it out for me, because sometimes, I don’t know…” In both the rehearsal and opening performance, Kaz relied on Anastasia to take over the narration (with a voice recording) during the section about Mel’s disappearance – a portion of the story that discloses an eerie mimesis of their grandmother Lenke’s plight; a wound that will probably never resolve."




AUGUST: AWARDED APRA-AMCOS ART MUSIC AWARD
FOR WORK WITH ADSR ZINE








JULY: INSTRUMENTALISING YOUR DESIRE:
SCREENDIVE: GAUDEAMUS COMISSION



Instrumentalising Your Desire; Effective Meditations Protocol® is an audio-visual program developed via the Social Practices Association (located on the 18th Parallel of Adminicity). SPA produces ‘effective meditational’ instructional modules which can be adapted to calibrate the employee-affect-relations (EARS) of nearly every industry.

Developed from Director James Hazel’s patented SURVEY-SCORE© technology, we turn to the realm of the sonic as a medium that can reveal employees’ deeper machinic-desires, both in and out of the work-play-space. This offers an innovative solution to the previous ocular-centric, market-based approaches to management and logistics.




JULY: ADSR ZINE:  
SPECIAL COLLECTION EXHIBITION:
SYDENHAM CONTEMPORARY GALLERY


"James Hazel and Elia Bosshard of ADSR ZINE invite you to our next archival exhibition, of works drawn out and extended from digital to material forms; a provisional library which includes texts of special value, from the personal collections our contributing artists; a space wherein we can spend long durations with those writers/thinkers that have influenced our thinking and practice. In building this library, we are interested in the ways a text might betray a sense of having been lived with and alongside;

notes / comments / folded pages / signs of wear and tear /of treasured and pleasured annotations; those intimacies and proximities that index the ways in which ideas and words never expire on the page, but permeate all facets of experiential syntax."





JULY: CLASS-ACTIONS COLLECTIVE
COMMUNITY WORKSHOP: CARRIAGEWORKS





As part of Kaz Therese’s SLEEPLESSNESS public-program, Karen Therese, Aunty Rhonda Dixon-Grovenor, and James Hazel invite artists who have experienced involuntary poverty to participate in a workshop program. This workshop will extend the conversations around themes of SLEEPLESSNESS @carriageworks.

Info available on the Carriageworks website.

The workshop will explore our shared and lived experiences of class via labour, trauma, love and care in an era of radical change.

The workshop will be organised around a three-part collaborative approach comprising Kaz Therese’s Radical Kindness method; Gadigal and Bidgigal Elder Aunty Rhonda Dixon-Grovenor’s First Nations Cultural Leadership; and Composer James Hazel’s pre(care)ious listening exercises.

The objective of the creative process of Class Actions is to prioritise the mental, spiritual and cultural safety of artists and participants.

CLASS ACTIONS is a collective focused on better understanding how poverty, class and identity intersect within an era of radical change/crisis - guided by

the lived experiences of the CLASS ACTION founding members (Karen Therese, Aunty Rhonda Dixon-Grovenor and James Hazel) across three generations.
