The Substation/ Artist/Samara Hersh/
Samara Hersch is an artist and director whose practice explores the intersection of contemporary performance and community engagement. She recently completed her Masters at Das Theatre in Amsterdam.
Samara’s project It’s Going to Get Dark is currently part of The Substation's In Development Program. This work considers how new and urgent perspectives might emerge whilst sitting in the dark with other human and non-human bodies. This new work continues Samara’s investigation into critical trans-generational discourse and the potentials of performance as conversation. During this residency Samara and her team will be developing new technologies that elicit intimacy through listening, as well as workshops with seniors and local teenagers.
It's Going to Get Dark is part of Hyperlocal - a collaborative program between an artist and four presenting partners across Melbourne, Abbotsford Convent (Abbotsford), Dancehouse (Carlton North), Darebin Arts (Northcote) and The Substation – coordinated and produced by Performing Lines.
