Still standing art

‘…the body is deeper than the soul and its secrets inscrutable.’ E. M. Forster

For 3 performances only, Tableau artist and Canberra Critics Circle 2009 Artist of the Year, Min Mae maps a ‘pathway through vulnerability’ – experimenting with the human animal’s most essential means of communication – the wordless gesture.

Still Standing emerges from 2009’s I Die – Min Mae’s powerful response to ‘living with the desire to die’. In a way, this new work sees Min walk backwards – through the life stories of her performers – unearthing the autobiographical body in what is a primal excavation of the human heart.

Central to the work is the key question: how does one keep going?

Performers Jordan Best, Alison McGregor, and Michael Ellis undergo what Min Mae terms ‘trials of influence’ – those moments or events in a human life that push it inexorably towards its future. Live music – including original compositions played by Guitarist Geordie Malone and Cellist Spike Thompson, and an evocative, interactive lighting design by Gillian Schwab, provide symbolic representations of these elements that figure within a life’s story.

“those moments or events in a human life that push it inexorably towards its future”

Like, not dying?

I have read about 5 of Min Mae’s performance descriptions and I have yet to figure out what is going on. That may just be me, not versed in the language of performance theatre.

Does The Street serve alcohol at performances? This would be cool with some brie and a nice red.

Maybe a Cigar too….
