EXISTENCE THEATRE LABORATORY

EXISTENCE THEATRE LABORATORY operates on the intersection of visual, physical and performative art. Creating from such a place provides us with the chance to reach new people and hear their voices, while keeping an open mind for what may evolve. Our work investigates urgent, contemporary themes and stands for gender equality, diversity and cultural tolerance and against stigma and label. It is a unique form of what we call performance theatre.

In general it is conceptually, formally and technologically ambitious and has contributed to current cultural and art form developments over many years through commissions, independent productions and Conference presentations/publications nationally and internationally. Due to Covid, most of our recent work has been developed and presented in Western Australia.

In the context of our endeavour to provide a rich, varied and high-quality work, we collaborate with young and established artists and those who are interested in contemporary, embodied forms of artistic expression through participatory processes. Our explorations are site-specific works, known to be poignant, powerful, poetic, positively engaging and immersive.

EXISTENCE THEATRE LABORATORY is coming to STRANGE FESTIVAL PERTH from 17 to 27 JUNE 2022. MORE INFO HERE.

AS LONG AS… THE BODY FUNCTIONS… AND ITS VULNERABLE PARTS APPEAR… TO BE CHALLENGED… THROUGH WAYS OF EXPRESSION… THAT IS MOVEMENT… WE EMBRACE THE SOUL… OF BEING ALIVE.

Step into the flowing world of EXISTENCE THEATRE LABORATORY, where socio-critical questions meet individual experience. Diverse performative sequences, involving body-based performance, sound/music and projections, will address the functionality of the well-known methods of Existence Theatre, based on the aesthetics of corporeality as its core element.

Participating performers will meet with audience, who may walk in and out of action during festival times to gain insight into the process of emergence.

The artists will focus on exploring opportunities and boundaries of their practice during and beyond STRANGEFESTIVAL and how experimentation within these parameters opens new space for personal and collective enquiry at this point.
