KISS club 2020

presented by PICA and pvi collective | 3 + 4 September, 7pm

“I love KISS club. The freedom that it gives artists to try new, difficult and unlikely things is unlike any other short form performance night.” – audience member, 2019

The ever popular KISS club is back for its 10th year!

KISS club is a performance event for ideas in development, this year featuring 7 works from an exciting selection of Perth artists working across live and experimental performance. Co-curated by PICA and pvi collective, artists will present 10 minutes of a work in progress to an audience, giving them a chance to trial new ideas and receive immediate and supportive feedback.

KISS club is always a rich collision of evolving ideas and art forms. In 2020 it packs a flavoursome hit! Artists are playing with the participatory, the poetic, the performance lecture, social experiments with currency, musical possibilities of neurological equipment, VR playgrounds with imaginary friends, and choose-your-own-adventures.

KISS club 2020 reveals an appetite from artists to unpack global and social pressure points including notions around nature, colonisation, agency, power, sex, wealth and social and cultural relationships.

A hit each year with audiences, this fast and fun performance night regularly SELLS OUT. Get in quick as tickets are strictly limited.

We’d normally say “pucker up, Perth” but this time we’ll rephrase and swap the kiss for a hearty “welcome back”.
