During June, as part of Dark Mofo 2017, Salamanca Arts Centre will host a number of exciting new projects – including live music, installations and new text-based theatre.
“Salamanca Arts Centre is excited to once again collaborate with Dark Mofo, and we look forward to welcoming local, interstate and international audiences into the Arts Centre,” says SAC’s Acting CEO Joe Bugden. “In particular, SAC commends this year’s festival team for their ongoing commitment to recognising, valuing and presenting new Tasmanian work.”
The Long Gallery will house Outposts, curated by Brendan Walls, in which “lost signals and voices from the electro-magnetosphere seethe and mutter in the dark.”
Outposts will feature installations by artists Peter Blamey, Eden Meure, Sally McIntyre, Pip Stafford and Brendan Walls/Robert Ashley.
During the festival weekend evenings the Long Gallery will be taken over by The Last Bastion. This live performance, which is also curated by Brendan Walls, is described as a “sonic assault”. The line-up includes Matt Warren, Julia Drouhin, Dani Kirby, Edwina Stevens (Eves) and Jen Tait, SmashHits (Eden Meure, Bethany Sweatman and Tom Robb), Julius Schwing, Alf Jackson, Greg Kingston, Alethea Coombe, Michael Matherson Saunders, Lexie Lynch and Dangerous Game.
