Proudly Celebrating the International Year of Exploitative Corporate Colonialism
An epic corporate comedy feat. DOPPELGANGSTER UK/AUS (Dr Tom Payne + Tobias Manderson-Galvin) as heavy-drinking British billionaire Jack Puntila, and his devoted man servant or maybe just an uber driver who hasn’t closed the ride yet, Matti Flint.
Two siblings, and an unrelated audience stand in a gallery. The Eternity… is a black mass, a misremembering, and a disappearance act. A ritual, a meditation, and a metaphysical operation.
EVERYBODY LOSES is a performance of a death by snake bite. In this one man show Doppelgangster’s Dr Tom Payne informs his audience that phone signals have been blocked, the doors locked, he’s shooting up venom, and nobody is leaving until he knows what it is to die.
MKA + Doppelgangster present a non-stop, eight-hour pre-execution final statement. A durational performance featuring Tobias Manderson-Galvin, Grace Lauer, Dr Tom Payne, Ruby Donohoe, Kerith Manderson-Galvin, and guests.
It’s one hundred years to the day since Mata Hari’s execution by firing squad. 63 years since ‘The Desert Fox’ chose cyanide over a public treason trial. Two years since Licho Escamilla was murdered by the state of Texas. It’s about 8 months since an ex-lover sent me a message saying never to text again or the police would be called. 11 years since I was fired from my first job for calling ‘A Current Affair’. It’s almost the last day we have left…
Technology is advancing at a savage velocity ― but how will that affect the future of food? To help answer that question, we invited the completely fictional Professor Hans Edelmen from the equally fantastic Prague Institute of Culinary Technology ― and several members of his wholly unbelievable research team ― to work alongside Lûmé’s kitchen creatives in a one-off, multisensory dining event as part of Melbourne Food and Wine Festival in April.
The teams from MK-Alpha, WeNeverSleep, folk rockers Burnt Letters, and Lûmé’s kitchen creatives take you forward in a one-off, multi-sensory dining event. Sound, light, taste, smell, and your own desires shape this event – including the perfumed, take anti-memory book, full of recipes, poetry, and photography.
Imagine you could experience every corner of our culinary landscape all in one night? We don’t just mean eating food from that local area – we mean feeling, seeing, touching and hearing it too. A total immersion of the senses. Hitchhiking with Lûmé you’re sure to deviate off the beaten trail, so come prepared! This is no Contiki trip… There’s more to food than taste alone.
On the cusp of David Lynch revisiting his television masterwork, ‘Twin Peaks’, Melbourne’s own mind blowing & undefinable
J A Z Z P A R T Y will take you back to an eerie place where everyone knows everyone and nothing is as it seems.
It’s only a paper moon, but if you believe it then for one night only Passionfruit transforms into a starry sky.
