Tuesday 3 October · 6pm-9pm
National Art School · Hoff Gallery, enter through Forbes Street
Entry FREE with an Underbelly Arts Festival ticket, or $10 on the door pending availability.

You have a colossal, risky, experimental, strange and wonderful idea for a festival. You hold it to your heart and run the gauntlet of audience expectations, funding and partnership obligations, bureaucratic red tape, rapid gentrification, more paperwork, an overworked and apathetic populace, economic arguments… You emerge... What is the size and the shape of this thing after this shredding? What was lost? What remains? Is it worth fighting for?

The Silent Eye

The Silent Eye

Directed by acclaimed Australian filmmaker Amiel Courtin-Wilson (Bastardy), The Silent Eye captures a freeform collaboration between two ageing legends: 72-year-old dancer Min Tanaka and 88-year-old free- jazz pianist Cecil Taylor. Beautifully shot in Taylor’s home over three days, the film is a highly intimate, impressionistic portrait of the unspoken rapport between two masters of their form who have been collaborating for over thirty years. Part jam session, part avant-garde experiment, it’s a thrilling visual and audio experience. 
Director Amiel Courtin-Wilson will be in attendance to hold a Q&A after the screening.

Late at the Lab hosted by Liquid Architecture

Join Underbelly Arts and Liquid Architecture for an evening of coastal listening and tidal thinking. This Lab will offer ideas and discussion led by curator Camila Marambio, with the goal of opening participants’ ears to a set of subjects: water, rocks, sand, weeds, shells and things that live in them. Let your ideas rise with the tide during this experimental process of shore-listening, where water and earth are two moments of a p a s s a g e.

6-7pm: Meet at the Hoff Gallery and take tour of Underbelly Arts works in progress
7-9pm: Meet at the Hoff Gallery for Late at the Lab, hosted by Liquid Architecture
