Listening

When you attend a show at The SUBSTATION, there are a series of actions taken to shift your focus and ready you for the work you are about to see. Taking in the building on arrival, reading a guide in the foyer, and entering a gallery or event space - these rituals are designed to prepare you. We are interested in how this experience can best be delivered to you online, to provide a moment of respite and contemplation during what continues to be a challenging time.

Partnering with our long time collaborators Room 40 and residents, the Australian Art Orchestra, LISTENING will arrive every Friday morning in the form of new voice and sound works. Each week, dance artist Jo Lloyd will begin each recording with a spoken reflection to prepare you to relax, rest and listen.
