MPavilion - Atlanta Eke 'Wetware'

Photography - Tobias Titz

Join us at MPavilion where Australian dancer and choreographer Atlanta Eke brings to us the second iteration of Wetware, a performance concerned with time travel. The work, a response to RMIT Design Hub’s recent Occupied exhibition and now further developed for MPavilion, imagines that architects from 2050 have travelled back in time via the digital universe to share a dystopian tale from a near future; a drowned world where land-based life has returned to the sea.

Choreography: Atlanta Eke 
Dancers: Atlanta Eke, Annabelle Ballharry, Angela Goh, Rebecca Jensen, Kathleen Campone 
Composer: Daniel Jenatsch

Following Eke’s Wetware performance, MTalks presents a panel discussion entitled ‘The architecture of display: Scenography as an agent for performance and design’. It will delve into all things ‘scenography’, defined as “the design and painting of theatrical scenery” or “the representation of objects in perspective in painting and drawing”. Panelists include Atlanta Eke, Fleur Watson of RMIT Design Hub, Matthew Bird of Studiobird, Bruce Gladwin of Back to Back Theatre, and David Neustein and Grace Mortlock of Otherothers.
