Happy Hour #12



We are delighted to announce the twelfth edition of our Happy Hour Series.


ArtistsTra Mi Dinh; Cleo Mees; Victoria Hunt, Moe Clark and James Brown.

Tra Mi Dinh will perform Not The Piece - a nod to the dismissed, forgotten, silly, or potentially perfect alternate ideas that get thrown around the rehearsal room. These fleeting mo(ve)ments are offered another life in a fresh context for practically the same purpose. 

Cleo Mees will present Feeling Good - a work about the precarity, pleasure and meaning of work for the artist-academic under neoliberalism. Part story and part essay, its protagonist grapples with an overpowering loss of faith in her line of work. As she searches for a new way to ascribe value to the things in her life, she finds sustenance (and maybe answers) in everyday pleasures, feminist writing, and the muddy beauty of team sport.

Victoria Hunt will share work from Weather Beings - her project with her ongoing collaborators Moe Clark and James Brown.

New Date TBC

Time: 6pm

Tickets: $15
