The Symposium [Love and Other Ecologies, Volume 1]
A performance art theatre piece

An otherworldly take on Plato’s Symposium as realised by 9 collaborative performances relating to love and ecology as performed in the hazy dark, beneath a ceiling of upside down trees, violin bows, darkness/subterannean/subaquatic lighting, and love letters. An audience of 45 placed in the centre of the round. Sounds of whispers, wind, and The Scrapes.

9 artists responded to the idea of love, with 5 minute performances in the round.
No video documentation. 
Available for festival or theatre presentations.
Judith Wright Centre of Contemporary Arts, Brisbane, AU, 2014.
