Australian Contemporary Performing Arts
Tamara Saulwick and Steve Berrick
Date:2 April, 2018 (Monday)
Venue:4th Floor Conference Hall, BFSU Library
Tamara and Steve will share insights into their creative practice and methodology, and its context within the Australian contemporary performing arts scene. The two artists will talk about several pieces of their work, describing the making process and talking about where their works sit within contemporary Australian practice. Aspects of how the work was developed, what they were interested to explore with this work, how the technology works, and some of the challenges with working with technology in this way will be fully discussed.
