Now what do you get if you combine an artist drawing on an iPad, with a musician on mic/steel tube and guitar pedals with a Butoh performer. You get Theatre of Thunder, a Brisbane based instillation/performance group. Great night……
Sometimes my brain just wanders off,
All by it’s self,
To look at tomorrow.
To gaze at all those wonderfully exotic creatures
That inhabit the worlds of tomorrow.
Bloody nuisance this is, as
what is happening right NOW is usually fairly enjoyable.
So to help stop all this silliness I’ve started a series of quick experiments in colour as a daily reminder to pay attention to what is actually happening around me in real time.
Here’s the first five………
Saturday night in Brisbane, with Theatre of Thunder. Gotta say this is the first time I’ve seen guys slam into a piano with lengths of wood. Boom, amazing sound as it echoes off the concrete. Concrete blocks, concrete walls concrete floors- and flesh. Concrete and flesh – Butoh
This is a lamp
It sits all day and half the night
On a piano
In a music studio
Must be kinda frustrating
immersed in rhythm and melody
and well- you’re just a lamp
Under a full moon, the lights of the city shimmered on the river as trails of liquid fiery light danced in the air
At the Firetricks Festival of fire
