A durational work that looks at our need for freedom, and where, when and how this exists and is expressed. Engaging deliberate & incidental audiences in public spaces, ‘Everyday Freedoms’ proposes states of being while questioning ideas about value, systems, and freedoms. It is an exploration of physical and intangible containment, of boundaries between collective responsibility and the individual as well as shifting needs. First performed in abandoned shopfronts at Valley Metro train station shopping centre in Brisbane, AU.
The piece is part of ‘They Gather’, an ongoing international collaborative, multimodal, interdisciplinary project, creating ‘gatherings’ of people, action, movement, and sound. ‘They Gather’ consists of a growing series of independent but interrelated performances (modules) that explore the boundaries between audience, participant and performer, creating dialogue with environments, societies, politics, histories and speculative futurologies. The project aims to empower and open dialogues around the complexities and polarities of contemporary living.
