undefended – experiment one

Wed June 19th @ 7:00 pm - Fri June 28th @ 9:00 pm AEST

ben cobham – helen herbertson – michelle heaven – john salisbury

an iconic 1950’s home blends people & place, sliding between the familiar & the imaginative, as the exacting forms of dance, performance, design, light & architecture rest lightly together, inside a sense of the everyday while immersing the viewer in a density of experience

herbertson & cobham’s collaborations (descansos, delirium, strike 1, morphia series, strike 3, sunstruck) have been milestones in challenging what performance space can be, blending dance-based forms, light-based design & the central question of what it is to be human. the creative partnership continues with the undefended experiments, capitalising on being resident in the walsh street house through the generosity of the robin boyd foundation
