so many people are wanting to come to kiss club this year, we’ve added a second date on thursday 12th september.
presenting new works in progress at this year’s club will be adam bennett, daley king, elizabeth pedler, jacinta larcombe, jen jamieson and patrick gunasekera.
their works span a wide range of creative practice and tough on a wide range of theme including gender, mental health, sexuality, racism and cultural appropriation.
kiss club is a performance event for ideas in development, featuring emerging and established artists across live and experimental arts practice.
created by sydney based artist karen therese, kiss club has been presented by tactical media group pvi collective since 2010 until it began a partnership with pica in 2016.
in 2019 kiss club continues as a collaboration between pica and pvi collective.
selected artists will present 10 minutes of a work in progress to an audience, providing a chance to trial new ideas and receive feedback in a generous and warm environment.
this fast and furious performance night gives audiences a fresh insight into what is bubbling in the hearts and minds of perth’s experimental performance makers and the opportunity to help shape and support new work.
ahead of their kiss club presentation each group works with a provocateur from pvi collective on the development of their work.
