For the opening weekend of the Festival, fifteen black teepees will fill Federation Square, each big enough for just two people. Within each, a brief work of sonic performance unfolds, a work solely for you – the only other person in the room.
The Sonic Flock is an experiential aural exhibit with a decidedly intimate twist – a free-form, immersive art experiment with a rotating roster of almost 30 local and international performers. At the end of each of the weekend days, larger scale, more communal performances take place. Saturday features Shadow Tales, performed by Footscray Community Arts Centre’s Amplified Elephants in partnership with theatre company Rawcus, while on Sunday three acclaimed Japanese sound artists feature in Extremities.
