Big West Festival presents
PUBLIC is a new site-specific performance
work by Tamara Saulwick and collaborators set amongst the comings and
goings of the Highpoint food-court. A playful riff on our
need be with others and our desire to be alone, it pushes at the boundaries
between public and private.
Cracks in the veneer of ordinariness appear when performance and the procession of everyday life unexpectedly collide in the food-court. Performers appear and disappear into the crowd, whilst audience equipped with wireless headphones find themselves drawn into a series of covert and unexpected encounters. Mobile phones texts, incongruous musical moments, intimate confessions — PUBLIC reconfigures the public space and the people within it. The food-court at Highpoint will never seem quite the same again.
