Around the world, protests and public gatherings are often broken up by police. Nothing to See Here (Dispersal) is a choreography of crowd dispersal, created in consultation with people who have real-life experience of the techniques police use to break up protests.
Arts House patrons will be circulated away from areas in and around the Meat Market and North Melbourne Town Hall, leaving behind cleared-out spaces in which there is ‘nothing to see’.
