I'M INVOLVED IN A FRINGE FESTIVAL SHOW! OUR COLLECTIVE RANGES IN A FLURRY OF PRACTICES.
Here are some images of what you would perhaps catch an eye-full of if you could come and see it....
"Darlington Garage Presents" a showcase of hybrid art, collaborating between actors, dancers, and performance-artists, media and sound artists, musicians, film-makers, photographers and installation artists. And robots.
But just what and who is Darlington Garage?
Well, aside from being a spider-infested shed out the back of dubious shared accommodation, Darlington Garage is a group of emerging artists from various backgrounds and areas of expertise who pool their collective creative resource in the formation production and performance of multi-discipline, multi-medium and multi-faceted pieces.
The works are disparate, but the themes are surprisingly concise and unified, centring around the essential human question: Who am I? Framed in the literal, the figurative, the historical and the surreal, often in the same work, the quest for identity, self and surety, in a rapidly changing world is a crucial part of the artists' work. Being emerging artists, breaking free of the chrysalis of teenage life, tertiary education, feeling the cold wind of the real world blowing for the first time, this search for a self-identity that will stand the test of time, and the tides of ones own mind is immediate, pressing, and also deeply rich soil for creative seeds to grow.
Featuring the critically acclaimed Absolute Necessity, Balls as seen in the Emerging Writers Festival 2008 and several new works across an array of artistic mediums, this is a night full of fun and frivolity that will keep you thoroughly entertained.
AT The Brunswick Street Gallery, Level 2 - 322 Brunswick St, Fitzroy Friday 3rd October through to Thursday 9th October (excluding Tuesday 7th October) from 8pm till 10pm.
