Composite Acts is a special one-night presentation of a newly commissioned video work and live performance by esteemed Australian artist David Rosetzky. This enigmatic work examines the relationship between language and desire, while exploring non-binary sexual identities, social dynamics and power.
Join us for an evening presentation of Rosetzky's new video and live performance work, with choreography by Jo Lloyd, performed by Shelley Lasica and Harrison Ritchie-Jones, sculptural works by Sean Meilak and a music composition performed live by Duane Morrison.
Composite Acts is a Channels Festival commission curated by Kelli Alred, presented in partnership with Abbotsford Convent as a special one-night only post-festival event.
