Beyond a Thousand Words – Experimental Slide Night at Verge Gallery
We all know the old saying: a picture is worth a thousand words. Verge Gallery’s slide night will take pictures (submitted by the University of Sydney’s student body), combine narration, music, performance art and some theatre, creating a truly memorable event.
In the mix will be Zsuzsanna Ihar (with Brigitte Gerges), who will be sleeping throughout the show but not because it’s boring! She is inviting the audience to join her in ‘slumber world’ and interact between the two realities of consciousness and unconsciousness (visually enhanced with an overlay of surreal imagery).
Axel Powrie and Jack Reilly will be dueling with sound, using their own personal musical styles – Jazz and Indie respectively, to play off one another in a challenging battle for musical supremacy.
Also on the night, theatre writers, Tim Hunt, Dylan Batty and Annika Elise Blau, are scripting an experimental narrative that explores concepts of light and dark – good against evil – white vs. wholemeal, from humorous and complex perspectives.
Cecilia White will be exploring the light shed by knowledge and cultural awareness in her work ‘The Lover Circles Her Own Heart’.
This evening is FREE and food/refreshments provided.
