WishingDARK at Adhocracy

WishingDARK has been selected to be part of Adhocracy 2012. The annual event presented by Vitalstatistix, Adelaide, is a “make ‘n’ show hothouse” over the June long weekend. This will be the first creative development and I will be working very closely with sound artist Ashley Scott. A durational performance, it will explore those dark liminal places we sometimes find ourselves in.
