5:00 – 6:00
AGITATE is a series of weekly artist interviews and panel discussions that will engage two industry creatives in conversation — unpacking and exploring their work and practice with the question: What is the role of art and culture in social change and progress?
Artist Dave Court (RCC’s Lollipop Land Exhibition) has created this series to encourage discussion between visual artists, musicians, theatre makers, curators and more – focusing on conversations about recent environmental disasters and political troubles, while asking the big question of how society navigates things from here.
Co-hosting the series every Thursday will be ABC Adelaide Journalist Patrick Martin and local writer and freelance producer Caitlin Ellen Moore.
WEEK TWO GUESTS:
Award winning London-based trans writer Kit Redstone is currently directing and performing in Passengers at RCC 2020. Kit’s work explores what it means to be human, using an eclectic mix of performance tropes and styles. Balancing absurdist comedy with heartfelt explorations, Kit’s work often uses direct address to actively involve audiences in his performances.
Jolie Booth is an award-winning Brighton based feminist writer, museum creator, producer and woman of magic. Jolie’s work weaves between the inner and outer worlds, seeking to provoke and instigate social change. Seeing theatre as a spiritual path, her work is extra-live, giving permission from the performers to the audience to relax and take whatever comes.
Queer Femme Kerith Manderson-Galvin is a Melbourne based performance maker and artist with an interest in capturing and inhabiting queer femininity in performance. Kerith’s work appears in galleries, theatres, gigs, online and at music and arts festivals and they have performed across Australia at venues and events. Kerith holds a Masters in Writing for Performance from the VCA.
All talks will be FREE to attend via the RSVP link.
Donations for the SA bushfire recovery and Climate Council are welcome at the bar.
AGITATE is in collaboration with Dave Court, Creative Revolutionaries and RCC’s Lollipop Land exhibition.
