When:February – December 2019
Expect the unexpected
Noir pop echoes off tinnies at a popular swimming hole. A drag queen sits on a gold couch playing bluegrass. A soprano sings at the dog park.
There’s a poem at the petrol pump. A comedian in a chicken shop. A mime on a mountain.
Art is coming… when you least expect it.
INTERPOSE is a series of temporary performances and workshops across the ACT that present unconventional, hybrid and experimental art-forms in unexpected places.
Yucky the Drag Queen:
Yucky the Drag Queen is a musician, singer and professional gender alien who fell from the far reaches of a distant galaxy and is currently based in Canberra, ACT. Yucky is variously described as glamorous, obtuse, sexy, stupid, and kind of weird-smelling. Combining elements of dance, history, space-travel, and biological science, Yucky performs regularly at events and venues all around Canberra and is sure to make you feel excited, funny and a maybe a little sick.
Baring all with the release of “quiver” – their tome to the complexities of life and self-acceptance – acclaimed singer-songwriter Shoeb Ahmad maps out a unique narrative around identity politics and deep moods with an emo-soul soundtrack.
Expect sad songs, earnest lyricism and reflective melodies set to guitars, voices and electronic loops.
What started as a long distance affair and now a Canberra/Sydney collab, Australian Sweetheart are ready to share their disjointed heartbreak pop with you.
Wedged between groove driven cyber-pop and an almost twee vocal sensibility – like Alice Glass on sedatives – they promise to ready you to move your feet, whether in front of your mirror, in the living room or somewhere with a smoke machine…that’s for you to decide.
