PERFORMANCE SPACE PRESENTS
BY ALEX WHITE AND EMMA RAMSAY
Tele Visions is a live broadcast that takes advantage of the medium’s dying moments and pulls the cultural and technological phenomenon of TV apart.
After nearly sixty years, the most pervasive and dominant media platform we have ever seen will be switched off in Sydney on the 3rd of December 2013. Join us as we celebrate the final days of analog TV through new and historically significant works interrogating the medium of television.
In a week-long, one-off transmission live online and via short range analog TV broadcast, this five-day program of live performances, screenings, talks and interruptions will form a pop-up TV channel that re-imagines the televisual space.
Featuring new works devised specifically for live TV, artists Lara Thoms, Joel Stern, Kate Blackmore, Frances Barrett, Wrong Solo (Agatha Gothe-Snape and Brian Fuata) and Pia van Gelder will cross-examine the form that defined mass media.
Tele Visions explores the boundaries between behind-the-screen performers and audiences both on-set and on the couch – an anarchic wake that bids farewell to the linear monolith that has dominated your lounge room for so long.
