Award-winning multimedia artist, writer, public speaker, educator and record label boss Terre Thaemlitz takes over The Substation with her uncompromising, confronting and intellectually ignited work.
Thaemlitz's oeuvre resists easy categorisation, spanning the musical spectrum from deep house to neo-expressionist piano solos, glitch to ambient. Her practice is a provocative engagement with identity politics, working through issues of gender, sexuality, class and ethnicity while also digging into the structural dynamics of media production and reception within society.
The performance starts with a 5-10 minute slide show, where Thaemlitz explains the scale and format of the Soulnessless project, followed by an 80-minute performance of Cantos I-IV. The evening will conclude with a 30-45 minute Q&A with the audience.
Presented by The Substation in association with Room40 as part of Asia TOPA.
Restricted to 18+: This performance features adult concepts, nudity, surgical images and materials that would not be suitable for young audience members.
