VB09 – Event

Chinese College / Monash University
1 October 2009

Monash University PhD candidate in Communications & Performance Studies Maeva Veerapen invited us to submit a performance proposal for their upcoming conference time.transcendence.performance. Having been interested in our culture of spectacle vis-a-vis the reality of the banal, I created Event, a performance composed primarily of waiting, punctuated by brief intervals of intense activity. Invited to choose a venue for the performance anywhere on the campus of Virtual Monash, I selected the traditional architecture of the Chinese College courtyard. We performed live at Virtual Monash, and streamed live at the physical conference venue in Melbourne.
