A performance that takes on the tyranny of distance between Australia and Europe and our cultural fear of missing out. Addressing the presence of the live body in performance and its relationship to audience – how do you create a work without travelling? With help from leading UK live artist Joshua Sofaer along with a surprising surrogate, Sarah Rodigari explores the possibility of making a live performance in another city without physically being present. How can a performer share this dilemma with an audience? And how does an audience engage with a performer who isn’t there?
Supported by –Going Nowhere is supported by the Australian Government through the Australia Council for the Arts, its arts funding and advisory body; and the City of Melbourne through Arts House.
