West of What?
West of What? – Fringe Festival
Join Footscray Community Arts Centre for one big day of artistic cremations, enraptured performances, creative activities and installations. A world of words, dance and sound bring together all that’s unique about FCAC and the artists taking part in this year’s curated Fringe Festival program.
From 1pm, artists and performers including Yeshi, Supina Bytol, Mito Elias, Kate Hood, The Chaotic Order, the indirect Object, Guntur’s Dance Company and I Wayan will take to the FCAC Happy River Lawn, with market stalls offering local handmade products, a sausage sizzle and Happy River Café keeping the drinks and food flowing. At 5.30pm a procession of artists will lead us to the FCAC Rose Garden for a ceremonial cremation of JOLT’s exhibition Creative + Cremated.
From 7pm join Still Nomads and New Wayfinders in the Performance Space for MEMORY//DISPERSE, a visual and auditory performance of dance, music and poetry exploring the collisions and connections between language, space and memory.
West of What? We’re now and at the centre of it all, and this is what we have to say.
