At PICA we recognise that we are situated within the unceded lands of the Whadjuk people of the Noongar Nation. We pay our respects and offer our gratitude to Elders past and present, and to those emerging leaders in the community. We acknowledge all Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people and the importance of their care and continued connection to culture, community and Country.

Always was, always will be.

Our foyer is open today 10am–5pm . Our exhibitions are always free.

RECKLESS ACTS | Fantasy Light Yoga

Lose yourself in dark yogic disco in PICA’s Central Galleries.
Natalie Abbott (fire), Sarah Aiken (air), Rebecca Jensen (water) and Angela Goh (earth) are Deep Soulful Sweats. A little bit deep house, a little bit stompy, a little bit Jane Fonda, a lot of whacky weird; Fantasy Light Yoga is an energetic ritual/yoga/dance/party where everyone is a participant and there are no spectators. Live local DJ’s accompany the evening with driving beats to inspire the party vibes. Come with us and exorcise through exercise!

Deep Soulful Sweats was founded on the 2013 winter solstice. Since then it has been through many reincarnations including several Fantasy Light Yoga editions at Chunky Move, The Pulse Rejuvenation Module Festival of Live Art Dance Party Arts House, Peaks Of Phantasm at Northcote Town Hall Next Wave festival, Dark MOFO Hobart and You Gotta Werk (Shopp) Dancehouse, Galaxy Stomp Theatre Republic, Brisbane Festival.
Note: This is a participatory event, there are no spectators. Wear something stretchy and comfortable with runners or bare feet. Elemental colour palate is encouraged (see below) Prepare to get sweaty (in the best possible way) and consider bringing a change of clothes or a towel and a water bottle. Any personal items can be cloaked.
