This month, Hundred Years Gallery’s monthly performance night welcomes:
The Cabinet of Curiosity – an abstract space which the performer goes to when living with her muse – moving forward with curiosity through artistic discourse (and glamour) as opposed to falling back. Moving through various theatrical forms, the performer pays gratitude to an artist and artistic choices, applying and executing the voice and body with experimentation. The performer presents the need to advance, away from what is known – constantly. Reaching that long destined room can sometimes mean ‘the grass is always greener’. She explores the addictive aspects of the self – this as a doorway to desire and the closed door to self-respect.
Jeu Jeu La Foille:
Jeu Jeu La Foille’s Frontal Lobotomy – Bold, witty, and surreal, burlesque maverick Jeu Jeu la Foille fuses original beat poetry with the tormented lullabies of Tom Waits; punctuated with scientific accounts of perhaps the biggest error of judgment in medical history – the transorbital lobotomy. Dreamlike, passionate, and sometimes ridiculous; a dance through the woozy mythology, skewed narrative and embellished truths in the melancholic, irreverent world of Waits. Raising questions on differing attitudes towards mental illness, the various coping mechanisms, and with a unique blend of form and style – expect gruff puppetry, beatnik burlesque, spoken word, and a toyshop orchestra of musical reprobates.
Stepping aside as host of the night for a moment, Annabelle will be performing a new piece about depression and creation. Using video, song and humour Annabelle tries to make a performance about the unperformable.
