The TarraWarra Biennial will present a one-day program of performances, talks and interactive events curated especially for the Melbourne Festival on Sunday 19 October, 2014.
Gertrude Studio Artist Søren Dahlgaard will perform Dough Warrior Performance in the Landscape. Dressed in French baguettes the artist challenges the idea of painting through the application of pigment to the local vegetation in a uniquely transformative act.
The Telepathy Project (Veronika Kent and Gertrude Studio Artist Sean Peoples) will host a public event where singers, community choirs and visitors will congregate at the TarraWarra Lake to sing the libretto Reading Solaris to the Great Moorool, written for the Biennial by Melbourne jazz artist Julie O'Hara. The artists will then read aloud to the lake the dreams collected in the Postcard Dream Project. This project collaborated with members of the public by asking audiences to record their dreams after reading the text The Great Moorool.
Søren Dahlgaard's Dough Warrior Performance in the Landscape will take place at 11am, followed by The Telepathy Projects' Reading Solaris to the Great Moorool at 12pm. Both performances are free events as part of the Melbourne Festival A Day in the Valley morning program
