Wannabe a rabbit?
The title, Wannabe a Rabbit? from text created by a performer, refers to the human compulsion to categorise and distance difference and the blinkered attitudes that result. ‘What are you? a wife, a worker, disabled, a refugee, black/white, an Aussie oi oi, a rabbit? Who counts?’ Must we all aspire to the dominant paradigm? In the course of the show categories blur and assumptions are turned on their head.
Choreographed by Yumi Umiumare in collaboration with Weave Movement Theatre, the work moves between the surreal, absurd and mundane, humorously reversing perceptions of difference. The performance features sound artist Dan West and installation artist Pimpisa Tinpalit.
