in cooperation with Jarvis Dooney Galerie as part of European Month of Photography:
DEREK KRECKLER: Accident & Process \ curated by Michael Dooney
Kreckler’s works span performance, film, photography, installation, and video. He has regularly created tough, insistent imagery that has been at the critical edge of Australian art history and which has provided comment on our country’s past, present, and future. The art of Derek Kreckler is often described as “unsettling.” Some have even referred to it as “dangerous.” Whether relishing the risk of experimentation and chance, or purposefully challenging our perceptions of country, identity, and self, Kreckler’s works flirt with an uncertainty that prickle the neck. At the same time, they open our eyes to the magic of how images are made, the murkiness of nationhood and its perpetuation, and the wonder of how powerful the landscape can be. His works have much to share about art history, social relations, popular culture, and the environment. Kreckler offers conceptual and expressive forms that are commanding, yet spacious.

Tanz im August 30. Internationales Festival Berlin (10.08.-02.09.2018) presents:
NICK POWER - Between Tiny Cities
"Two dancers face off in a circle amid the audience, the raw energy of b-boy battles focussed by contemporary choreography. In “Between Tiny Cities” Erak Mith, from Pnom Penh, and Aaron Lim, from Darwin, use rituals, movements and the language of their shared hip-hop culture to expose the contradictions of the worlds in which they live – and at the same time to show the connections between them. Taking his orientation from the battle culture of the b-boys, the choreographer and well-known hip-hop artist Nick Power constructs intercultural perspectives and subtly undermines prejudices about hip-hop and masculinity."

Reflecting a period of personal transition and social concern, this body of work takes on histories of fear and anxiety and through processes of colourful alchemy attempts to transform pain into beauty.

Komische Oper Berlin präsentiert:
Dmitri D. Schostakowitsch - Die Nase | Inszenierung: BARRIE KOSKY
"Barrie Koskys umjubelte Debüt-Inszenierung am Royal Opera House Covent Garden in London ist nach einer Zwischenstation in Sydney nun auch in Berlin zu erleben. Steppende Nasen, fahrende Rikscha-Tische, knallbunte Kostüme zwischen Folklore und Historismus in einem kühlen, trotz seiner Größe klaustrophobisch wirkenden Raum – Barrie Kosky inszeniert die surrealistische Geschichte um die Verlustängste und die Paranoia eines kleingeistigen Emporkömmlings als revueartiges Kaleidoskop der Eitelkeiten, eine verstörende Mischung aus Wozzeck und Alice im Wunderland."
