Lecture

Housemate Residency event with choreographer Phillip Adams and architect Matthew Bird.

Bookings Required      -    Admission free

Imagine a spiraling cyclone ravaging and devastating our ordinary everyday urban world... before, during and after.

Both Phillip Adams and Architect Matthew Bird together with RMIT architecture students are doing just this.

Performance, transformation and sacred qualities of natural disasters' might upon our urbanity are being considered through research, speculation and architectural design projects.

Joined by RMIT architect students, they will present diagrams, design drawings and models from their latest project - CYCLONE MATT.

An open forum will reveal and generate discussion about the intriguing nature of the performative and architectural dialogues of natural disaster, urban debris and adaptation.

"We see this event as an opportunity to hear us speak directly to our respective creative practices (Architecture and Dance ) and how we are developing a collaborative process within the framework of this.

I have been attending Matthews lectures at RMIT which have been incredibility inspiring and informative to our project thus far. The students are currently engaging on a brief that Matthew has prepared that correlates to our research and I have been developing notions of movement/ languages in reaction to these sessions.

Our evening on the 13th will also offer an opportunity to view the students' response to the brief in the form of models/ sketchers and plans". Phillip Adams
