In Residence at Bundanon

While undertaking a residency at Bundanon Kiera Brew Kurec will research and develop a new performance that is archived in real-time by its audience.

The performance will explore and test new methodologies to present and archive performance practice other than using the ‘traditional’ means of photographic and video documentation, instead utilising methods found within the preservation and communication of ritual and ceremony. The performance will be developed to have self-directive and intuitive instructions, which will allow audience members to become custodians and transmitters of the performance in to the future.
