Season 1, 2008 Program
Arts House is committed to the development of new arts practices, works and audiences, and in 2008 we continue to celebrate the transformative power of art that expands horizons for both audiences and artists alike.
Beyond Bread and Circus continues a commitment to contemporary arts practices which question our values and preconceptions. In a complex global context, Arts House in 2008 reflects a growing dissatisfaction with short term cultural, social and political fixes and the fleeting emptiness of high availability entertainment.
The 2008 program, Beyond Bread and Circus, celebrates artists who are questioning artistic boundaries and challenging all of us to think and see in new ways.
2008 sees the return of URBANology, an inter-disciplinary, non-festival cluster of contemporary urban-inspired artforms
featuring the inspired Le Parkour practitioners, Trace Elements. With the city’s built environment as its inspiration, canvas and stage, URBANology uncovers a new way of appreciating the creative possibilities of urban life.
For a journey of real discovery, you’re in the right place.
