EXPLOSIVE SELF

Working with the City of Yarra, Melbourne’s top surrealist performance artists - The Mighty Caesar, Marija The Romantic, Louise Purcell and Timothy Christopher Ryan - present acts that transition from a realistic representation of the routine/ritual through to abstracted and satirical depictions.

These series of short films explore the wild places our mind takes us when we’re forced into an isolated introspection.

Through physicality they explore the authentic self and the document the lived experiences in Australian Covid-19 lockdown.

Directed by Timothy Christopher Ryan.
