Passage

Passage is a site specific performance created for Treatment, a Live art event at Werribee Sewage Plant. Situated adjacent a pond of effluent, the performance translated the plant’s alchemic process of turning shit back into water. The work was developed through site-specific research that led to three performative responses reflecting three stages of the industrial process, specifically Solids Entry, Clarification and Water Re-entry. The performances occurred on the site of the clarification ponds and included employing the alchemic process in reworking disused gas suits from the plant, extending the body through costumed prothesis and working with the curators 12 year old daughter as an embodiment of water. The three performances was experienced as a bus tour where the audience wove around the site viewing the different performative interventions in the industrial landscape
