Start to blast

Start to blast: the idea of becoming better at something by purely
beginning. Practice is key and a skill can only can be realised by
starting your path toward it. Even this ideology can be applied (and
has been) to something as draining, exerting, physical and intense as
playing blast beats or fast on drums.

Telephone Dance

Telephone Dance is a choreography transferred over the phone.
The phone numbers of four choreographers have been put on the wall of the Margaret Lawrence Gallery in Melbourne. Viewers are invited to sms one of the numbers. In turn a choreographer will call them back and during a two minute phone call lead them through a choreography.

By: Jessyka Watson-Galbraith with Bianca Martin, Deborah Robertson and Aimee Smith. Initiated by USERNAME, an independent curatorial collective based in Stockholm and part of the project Deep Inside.

A space

The instruction is to invite / instruct eight people to capture what is for them the most characteristic essence of a space.

Two people are asked to represent the space via image.

Two people are asked to describe the space aurally - which, if so desired, can happen in a performative way - of which a sound recording is made available.

Two people are asked to describe the space in written text, the length of which fits on 1 page A4.
