3x3x2 Festival of New Works

Date: 23 Jul 2019

Three young, boundary-pushing artists will premiere their works as part of the 3x3x2 Festival of New Works at PACT Centre for Emerging Artists.

Writer and actor Emily Dash unveils Freefall, a candid and moving play that asks provocative questions about love and death, and explores the complexities of loving someone who sees the world differently to oneself.

Freefall is a story that most people can relate to, told from a fresh and unique perspective,” Dash says. “I hope that what we have to say will challenge audiences to think deeply – and expand their perceptions about grief, identity, disability, relationships and sexuality.”

Performance artist Christie Woodhouse asks important questions about how we need to prepare as citizens and as a society in BRING YOUR DEVICES IN CASE YOU FORGET. The work explores our fascination with prepping subcultures, skill sharing modulated by tech giants and community formation.

Woodhouse says, “Prepping viewpoints are incredibly varied from frugal self-reliance to multimillion dollar bug out bunkers, from militant lone-wolf protectionism to community-based initiatives. What preparation is required as a citizen and as a society? I believe we need more social forums to ask these questions.”

Yuwaalaraay artist Cheryn Frost presents Hydraulic Fucking, a queer political performance examining the destruction of our earth, the environmental impacts from fracking and the mining industry, and the parallels of land and sexual content.

Hydraulic Fucking looks at the destruction of Mother Earth at the hands of our government and multi-billion dollar corporations,” Frost says. “We’ve screwed her long enough, and she’s fighting back. This is for our mother.”

Dash, Woodhouse and Frost are part of PACT’s 3x3x2 comprehensive two-year residency for early-career performance artists, which offers artists space, mentorship, a salary and freedom to test an idea driven investigation.
