Performance: Nicola Gunn: Piece for Person and Ghetto Blaster

16-17 March 2018, 7:30pm, Vienna

Nicola Gunn, a Melbourne-based performer, writer, director and dramaturge, is bringing one of her performances based on text and contemporary dance to Vienna. Piece For Person and Ghetto Blaster is the story of a man, a woman and a duck, and dissects the complex realms of human behaviour by calling into question our capacity to make moral judgments. Nicola Gunn’s works usually blend performance, art and anthropology, focusing on current societal issues – social engagement, power relations, institutional critique and more. An Australia Council Creative Australia Fellow and a Mike Walsh Fellow, she draws mainly from her experience to create autobiographical fiction.
