KISS club 2018

KISS club 2018
Pucker up! Perth’s hottest performance club returns.
The ever popular KISS club is back, co-curated by PICA and pvi collective.
Originally created by Sydney based artist Karen Therese and gifted to pvi collective, KISS club is a performance event for ideas in development, featuring emerging and established artists across live performance practice.
Selected artists will present 10 minutes of a work in progress to a live audience, providing a chance to trial new ideas and receive feedback in a supportive, critical environment. A Q&A with a special guest speaker will also feature, providing insight into a topic beyond the arts.

This fast and furious performance night gives audiences a fresh view of what is bubbling in the hearts and minds of Perth’s performance makers and the opportunity to help shape and support new work.
Presented by Michelle Aitken, Joe Lui, Jess Nyanda Moyle and Holly Pooley
