THE COMPANY OF STRANGERS
KATE BROWN AND T. R. CARTER
THE COMPANY OF STRANGERS is an experiential endurance installation or happening where the artists in residence orchestrate an interactive dance performance with live elements and improvised dance as a celebration of the intimacy of human behaviour. Live online elements such as youtube and evolving online documentation will take place during pre-booked and walk in style performative interactions with the artists.
People are invited to make bookings with the artists for a documented one on one or group interaction with popular songs, moves and a chance for the local community young and old to experience, participate and interpret artistic practice as a process. Both artists studied a Bachelor of Fine Arts at the University of Western Sydney and Honours at Sydney College of the Arts where they became heavily involved in video and performance practices. This is their first collaborative work where they will meet half way between Melbourne and Sydney in Griffith - where both artists were born. THE COMPANY OF STRANGERS insists on taking contemporary art out of an academic context and bringing it into an accessible public sphere.
