Day_Pass

Not sure which Day Pass is for you?

 

We’re here to help! We’ll be profiling day passes in the lead up to the festival to help you find your match.

Day Pass 2 on Sunday 20 May is all hit, no quit. Begin your Sunday with coffee and ideas about the role of artists at Breakfast Club, with special guest Cat Jones. Then venture down to Mission to Seafarers, one of Docklands oldest and most discreet landmarks, where Hull  artists have created a series of installations responding to time and place. From the Mission you’ll mosey on down to the ‘docks’ where empty industrial apartments are juxtaposed by Joseph L Griffiths’ organically crafted Shelters and then it’s off to the other side of the real docks at Footscray Community Arts Centre for PHYSICAL FRACTALS, a thrilling new dance work by Natalie Abbott. From Footscray you’ll ride the rails to North Melbourne Town Hall to see the rich, other-worldly Wintering, inspired by choreographer Aimee Smith’s travels to the Arctic. It all wraps up at Wake up and wait for the sun to rise, Next Wave’s art club at West Space – a daily meeting place for performance, parties and conversation. Plus, a unique treat: your Ringleader for Day Pass 2 is the incomparable Beau McCafferty, former Independent Arts Manager of Melbourne Fringe. At $45 full/$35 concession, we reckon that’s a pretty sweet deal.

Wintering Next Wave Festival 2012

Wintering

Wintering, the latest dance work by choreographer Aimee Smith, asks the question what is it to live in a changing and disintegrating world? How do we sit with the tension between beauty and destruction, hope and fear?

Inspired by the fragility and strength of an iced landscape Wintering uses imagery and sounds collected by the artist from the Arctic environment together with the moving, dancing body to explore this complex relationship between humans and the natural world.
