CUISINE + COLOUR by Motley Collective and Da Boes

8pm at Extract Coffee Roasters

A colour infused dining experience where guests are at liberty to eat unconventionally.

We invite diners to appreciate the colours found in natural and seasonal ingredients as a visual form of sensory enjoyment. The menu and array of utensils at our events are designed to encourage mess and play during the meal. Diners are at liberty to treat their bibs and communal tablecloth a canvas, to appreciate the vibrancy of the menu. Cuisine + Colour serves to open up different perspectives on how food can be savoured. Through our passion for food and colour, we hope to bestow knowledge about local produce in dynamic way.

DOUBLE BILL: INTERCOURSE by Ultimate Dancer/Louise Ahl|COSAS by Alma Soderberg

7.30pm at the Trinity Centre (doors at 7pm)

Part of the Ausform Micro-fest, a sharp burst of progressive work from european artists selected on excellence and innovation.

Intercourse is a functional solo dance piece about dysfunctional relationships created with Louise Ahl’s performance alter-ego Ultimate Dancer. Three chairs, an aloe-vera plant and a critic take part in an odd sexual play that alters from ultimate pleasure to deep trauma. By exposing and advocating a live communication between artist, audience and critic, Intercourse wants to plant the idea that ‘everybody is a critic’.

In Cosas, Alma Söderberg sings while talking, talks while dancing and dances while singing. Cosas examines the physical aspects of language and does so by stripping words of their meanings and reducing sentences to their barest minimum. In a torrent of song, language, stamping feet and verbally punctuated gesture: sound and movement become one.

DOWN UP by Arron Sparks

6pm at Cafe Kino

Down-Up is a solo show about competition, innovation and the possibilities of the mundane. Strung together by a subject that has been overlooked by society. Down-Up challenges the idea that the Yo-Yo is merely something that comes out of a cracker.

Check out more about Down Up here.


SOCIAL MUSCLE CLUB|CLOSING PARTY

7.30pm – 12am at the Micro-Fest Hub

We’ll tie up the weekend with music, cocktails and SOCIAL MUSCLE CLUB. We all need something and we all have something to give.

Social Muscle Club attempts to change our habitual patterns of thinking and doing through the practice of sharing. It began life as a private party for eight friends in a living room in Berlin. Their inspiration was Peter Nestler’s documentary Menschen von Sheffield which features a factory workers’ social club that states “entertainment and social support” as its primary purpose. The group went on to research new ways for people to come together in order to strengthen commitment, open up dialogue, and overcome separation. Their discoveries carried them forward on a quest to create participatory events which use art – especially performance – as an excuse to bring people together to exercise their ‘social muscles’.
