pvi collective have been meeting people from the mandurah area over the last week and finding out what issues are of concern to them in their local community.
it’s all part of delivering the experiential work ‘resist’ which will have it’s climax at the mandurah performing arts festival this weekend.
‘ressit’ was first performed in santiago, chille, in 2008. since then it’s been delivered all over the world with local community members coming together and deciding what action should be taken on pressing issues via the ancient art of a tug of war.
in mandurah community members have shared their concerns about homelessness, substance abuse, the vibrancy of local businesses, trading hours, encouraging high quality street art, supporting the local lgbtiq+ communities, creating employment opportunities, keeping local waterways clean and many other issues.
on saturday 16th november from 3pm the team will be at dolphin beach at the keith holmes reserve, and will conduct a tug of war over each important issue.
