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.

Hull Next Wave Festival 2012

Hull

Visual artists Laura Delaney and Danae Valenza have collaborated with the Mission to Seafarers to create a site-specific installation within the historic building. Audiences are invited inside to share a space where merchant seafarers spend their days between voyages. Mission to Seafarers provides a temporary home to a community of 60,000 seafarers who dock in Melbourne’s ports each year.  A constant turnover of ships, crew and stories has been translated into a body of visual and sound-based works, located throughout the building. Hull explores our connection to ports, patterns of migration and trade by turning to those who experience the realities of life at sea, tracing uncharted aspects of Melbourne’s maritime history and reconsidering the contemporary significance of seafaring communities.

Hull launches on Sunday 20 May 2-6pm, rum for all seafarers and land-dwellers in the Mission to Seafarers dome (All other drinks can be purchased at the bar to help support the not-for-profit Mission to Seafarers).

Hull includes the free exhibition at Mission to Seafarers and a ticketed film and music event, RESCORE. Speakeasy Cinema and Danae Valenza will present a reimagining of silent cinema, inviting local musicians to rescore the experimental visions of seminal filmmakers.
