Private Lives

Curated by Supercell: Festival of Contemporary Dance

7 artists. 7 confessions. 7 private moments shared with strangers.

In this intimate event curated by HOTA Home Company Supercell: Festival of Contemporary Dance, a diverse cohort of female identifying artists share with you the stories they have always wanted to tell!  We reveal our secrets, share sweet moments of bliss,  offer the big stories and hard truths, with a few new courageous hobbies to boost. This is a collection of people championing the wild and the weird.

Scored by a live DJ, this long-form interactive performance will bend and warp storytelling as private lives and personal stories are offered for the voyeuristic among us.

Featuring performances by Chiu-ju Wang, Mindy Davies, Lauren Watson, Alicia de la Fuentes, Viviane Frehner and Rachel Archibald. Curation by Kate Usher. Movement Direction by Ashleigh Musk.

Presented by HOTA, Home of the Arts as part of UNDERGROUND
