Eglè Budvytytè: Some Were Carried, Some – Dragged Behind

1/15

Presenting a performance of actions along the banks of the Yarra River as part of 'ACCA in the City', Lithuanian artist Eglė Budvytytė will work with seven local performers to create a procession amidst the bustle of the CBD that draws on shifting surfaces, textures and soundscapes.

 

Playfully engaging with conventional ideas of the body in relation to public space, Some Were Carried, Some – Dragged Behind explores the ambiguity behind certain gestures, from violence and disobedience, through to empathy and care.

 

ACCA in the City is a series of performances, situations and uncanny moments designed by the Australian Centre for Contemporary Art to bring attention to the characteristics of the city of Melbourne
