6 Days by daniel ward on Performance Review

Conceived as a poetic response to Contact High, 6 Days is authored by daniel ward (no more poetry).

Contact High was a Performance Review takeover of Gertrude Glasshouse. Over the course of three weeks, six Naarm based artists rehearsed, workshopped and developed new or existing performance works in the gallery. This culminated in the public presentation of these works across two performance nights on 20 and 27 January 2022.

6 Days conceptualises each of the six Contact High performances as a day. The poems appear in order of performances. Read the full response on Performance Review
