Join Melbourne vocalist and electronic percussionist Simona Castricum for a special one-night only music event.
An emotive collection of songs about the fear of missing out, Panopticon is set between contradictions of intimacy and self-reflection. Simona uses music to delve into issues around scrolling, surveillance and isolation, exploring the body’s transition between the physical and the emotional. Simona’s signature percussive pop is highlighted by provocative text projected as part of the performance in this evocative live experience.
Simona will be joined by special guests Various Asses (percussion) and Cultra (vocals).
This event is part of BODY, a new major project from Arts House in partnership with Midsumma Festival amplifying the voices of trans, gender diverse and intersex peoples.
Supported by – BODY is supported by the Australian Government through the Australia Council, its arts funding and advisory body, and the Besen Family Foundation.
