Listen to Arts House Artistic Director Emily Sexton in a panel discussion on new practices that focus on the intersection between live and digital forms, and what this can mean for new partnerships, touring and residency approaches. What is the live experience in a contemporary world where the relationship between on- and offline is totally blurred? How is performance reckoning with the rise of the Golden Age of streaming television? How is the intimacy of watching performance in a dark room with strangers shifting? Speakers include dancer and choreographer Amrita Hepi, artist, filmmaker and performer Emile Zile, and dancer and choreographer Angela Goh.

Paeonia Drive is Angela Goh and Su Yu Hsin’s ongoing project exploring the intersection of live dance, installation and performance. Exploring nature, artificiality, beauty and horror, it invites you on a darkly scented night-walk through a garden with no exit.
Becoming The Icon
Becoming the Icon is a film in which the language of power manifests in familiar yet uncanny ways. Echoing the rhythms of political speech and gesture, artists Lilian Steiner and Emile Zile reveal the ways in which truth and conviction are more than abstract concepts, instead finding surprising roots in our embodied experience.
