DANIEL OLIVER + FRAUKE REQUARDT
Dadderrs // 7.30pm
Daniel is dyspraxic and is too slow.
Frauke has ADHD and is too quick.
They are married and have kids.
Doctor of awkwardness Daniel Oliver and international artist Frauke Requardt (“violently bizarre” ★★★★ The Guardian on Mothers) invite you to play in the Meadowdrome – their fantastical escapist world. Expect awkwardly intimate actions, strange dances, sweet and surreal songs. Explore, discuss and celebrate clunky (mis)understandings of bodies through ritual and play in this interactive performance.
♫ In the Meadowdrome there’s no place like home ♫
This performance contains nudity, references to sex, loud music and haze. This is a participatory show with optional audience participation. This show includes small pieces of large balloons and is not suitable for those who suffer from latex allergies.

EIRINI KARTSAKI + TASOS STAMOU
IN A WAY SO BRUTAL // 9pm
IN A WAY SO BRUTAL
BANGING YOURSELF AGAINST A WALL
IN A WAY SO BRUTAL
HITTING YOURSELF AGAINST A WALL
International award-winning artist Eirini Kartsaki embarks on a vocal, sonic and verbal experiment with electroacoustic music composer Tasos Stamou.
Together they create imaginary landscapes and narratives that explore the odd, the weird and the monstrous. They take things apart, shout at the void, and give into their own unbridled, restless desires.
This is a show about human monsters and giving in to our own monstrosity.
