FORE WOR In 2014, You Are Here is proud to be back as absurd and delightful as ever, with yet another program brimming over with events encompassing theatre, music, dance, poetry, visual arts, creative communities and everything in between. In our short life, You Are Here has drawn together diverse and extremely talented artists, uniting them with unusual locations and enthusiastic audiences ready to explore the unknown. Renewal and transformation are at the heart of the festival year after year, and we are grateful to be able to continue to develop and further the momentum behind You Are Here with funding from the ACT Government, as well as ongoing support provided by Canberra CBD Ltd. This year marks a big change for the festival as we farewell the brilliant team that was David Finnigan, Yolande Norris and Adam Hadley. In 2014, producers Nick Delatovic, Sarah Kaur and Vanessa Wright take charge, joined by Adelaide Rief and Andrew Galan. Even though there have been some changes, You Are Here continues to be a festival inspired by Canberra’s artistic community, as much as it is conceived in the mind of the producers. And we do what we do so that artists can experiment with ideas, take risks and create work that challenges our conceptions of what art can be (and who it’s for). Taking risks is a significant act in this world, and we’re ready to let You Are Here swerve into the traffic of life and continue to foster a community that is ready to take chances, create and observe new work, explore new ideas and new ways of defining Canberra.

And we can’t do any of this without the aces up our sleeve; the staff, artists and audiences willing to take a leap with us, to trust us and to continually turn up with open and inquiring minds, no matter what crazy ideas we throw at you. Without your support this wouldn’t be a festival, it wouldn’t be a thing at all, so thank you.

Vanessa, Nick, Sarah, Adelaide & Andrew

I am delighted the ACT Government is once again supporting the You Are Here festival in 2014. You Are Here is an energetic and dynamic event that supports emerging and independent artists and invites the community to participate in its activities, which are held throughout the city. The ACT is fortunate to be home to a vibrant arts community which brings our city to life with colour, movement, music and incredible talent. The ACT Government recognises that the You Are Here festival, now in its fourth year, is an important part of our artistic landscape and is pleased to continue its support.

The You Are Here Festival has become a significant highlight of Canberra’s cultural calendar and a key fixture of the Canberra arts scene. The festival is fast emerging as a pre-eminent experimental annual celebration, providing opportunity for emerging artists to showcase their arts and cultural talent.

Working with Canberra CBD Limited, You Are Here presents arts activity in non-traditional venues, revitalising city spaces and showcasing Canberra as a youthful and vibrant city.

The festival has received significant support from the ACT Arts Fund, through its Program category, to continue to stage the event. My thanks also goes to Canberra CBD Ltd, which is a strong supporter of the event and will once again assist with funding and offering street front shops and unused offices in the city for performances and events. The enthusiastic and dedicated team of You Are Here producers have curated a program of diverse and experimental arts activities that is sure to attract a strong live audience and interactive social media exchange across Australia.

The ACT Government is proud to support You Are Here through the ACT Event Fund, which assists local festivals and events that enrich our community’s experience of living in and visiting Canberra.

Launching at this year’s festival, through the support of the ACT Arts Fund, is Canberra Zine Emporium Zine Vending Machine, which will showcase the fabulous works of Canberra’s zine and comic makers. Following the festival, the ‘Zine Machine’ will tour to several locations in the ACT region.

I warmly welcome interstate visitors to our beautiful city, to immerse themselves in You Are Here 2014 and I encourage Canberrans to explore the novel and unique aspects of this exciting cultural celebration.

I encourage all Canberrans to show your support for our local artists and join in the celebrations, performances and activities the 2014 You Are Here festival has to offer. There is sure to be an exciting event offering for everyone.

Minister Joy Burch


WELCOME TO THE FESTIVAL The You Are Here festival is one of the most exciting events in Canberra’s strong 2014 artistic programme. The festival brings together Canberra’s safest performers with some special national and international guests that have been stringently screened for your protection. I would like to commend the tireless work of our Chief of Public Relations, Ms X, who has gone well above the call of duty to personally investigate the private lives of each and every individual associated with the festival. For far too long the Canberra arts scene has been challenged by artistic terrorists, holding innocent audiences to ransom with their radical ideas of ‘art’. It would be better that the shameful scenes of the three previous indulgent and debauched You Are Here festivals be expunged from the pages of history. But let us not dwell on the former administration’s mistakes. The content of this year’s festival is rich, vibrant and most of all, Acceptable. As you will no doubt be aware, the Benevolent Ministry of Art recently released the updated Doctrines of Acceptable Art. I personally lead the development of the updated Doctrines. Happily they have already enabled the exclusion of several risky and unsavoury items from this festival. The remaining performances are therefore Scientifically Proven to be entirely Acceptable Art. I hope you will take the time to enjoy this You Are Here festival, in moderation. Mr B Chairman, Benevolent Ministry of Art bmoa.net.au @Real_Mister_B

If this here finely printed program is not enough to satisfy your need for words on our many-splendoured festival then roll up for the very first, hot off the press edition of You There! With interviews, reflections, pre-emptive reviews, personals ads, quizzes, crosswords and a fold out poster – You There! is your perfect guide to the kookier, slightly left of centre side of the festival (and the perfect thing for the back of your toilet door). Pick up a copy at the festival spaces or find the digital version on our website.

Do you want your art all of the time, in all of the places? Of course you do. The Pop Up Trike is a roaming gallery space that features the work of local artists and conveniently packs down onto the back of a trike. Operating throughout the festival you can catch the Trike at events such as Neon Night Rider, Free Music for Rich Kids and Blurred Lines. Keep an eye on our website and social media for more updates about where and when the trike will be popping up.

You Are Here has invited writers and artists with a connection to Canberra to compose a letter to a Canberra suburb. We asked for poetry, short stories and artistic collaborations, all composed with a memory or an experience of Canberra in mind. In the lead up to the festival the resulting works have been posted to randomly selected addresses across Canberra – so you might just find one in your letterbox. But, if the postman doesn’t deliver you a letter then you can find these works on our website or pick one up from the You Are Here Letter Box at Blurred Lines, on Sunday 23 March at Gorman Arts Centre.

So call your friends overseas and at home and get them pasting, it’s time to spread the art.

The artists included in Blaze 8 are making work that is bigger, bolder and punchier than they have previously dared. From Alex Lewis’ gigantic labyrinthine staircase to S.A. Adair’s massive felt drawing installation, from Martin James’ poignant and political large-scale prints to Katy Mutton’s cloudscape ink drawings of World War II aircraft in flight, Blaze 8 will take viewers to new heights.

HOW TO SURVIVE AN ATTACK OF THE INTERNET TROLL When: 2pm–3pm Where: The Money Bin Writing on the Internet is not easy – as the walls between reader and writer dissolve, criticism is no longer limited to Letters to the Editor, and can instead result in comments telling you that you are a meaningless piece of shit at all hours of the day and night. With some writers even being driven to attempted suicide from internet trolling, it’s time to talk survival tips and coping mechanisms. Lip Magazine has assembled three experienced troll–survivors who will talk the ethics of Internet commentary, how to cope with nasty comments, and consider the question, at what point we accept trolling as part of the new media landscape?

FINDING S___ T____

When: 6pm–7pm Where: The Money Bin Description: Remember the first time you arrived? You’d always spoken the language of overpasses, skyscrapers and tram tracks, and in this new place you had no phrasebook or map, bell or key or candle. And someone said you shouldn’t have come in the first place, but here you are, trying to blend into the architecture just to belong.

Zoë Anderson and Raphael Kabo remember. They’ve been writing words about cities, and somehow this happened: part myth, part play, part storytelling, it’s an ode to what cities are, what cities could be, and what happens when you try to blend into the architecture but the architecture doesn’t like you. Artists: Zoë Anderson and Raphael Kabo.

A KREWD NIGHT When: 6pm, 7.30pm, 9pm Where: Petrie Plaza Merry-GoRound A KREWD Night is a live-art gallery performance. It takes you into the lost childhood dreams of a KREWD imagination.

Over the festival, You Are Here will feature a selection of artists guest-programming a selection of their favourite video clips, complete with interviews, discussion and live performances. This year gRage will be presented by Yen Eriksen, one of the hosts of Friday Night Lip Service on 2XX FM. Chris ‘CJ Bowerbird’ is a performance poet and former Australian Poetry Slam champion. His brother Pete plays bass in beloved indierock band Waterford. They’ve never shared a stage, let alone negotiated their individual tastes in music in front of a live audience – until now!

THE EXORCISM OF MEGAN CLUNE AND ANGELA GOH

WORD CO-OP

When: 7.30pm–8.30pm Where: Canberra Museum and Gallery, Gallery 4

Word Co-op is Canberra’s most feel-good bi-monthly evening dedicated to showcasing poetry. It provides a forum for extended poetry performances and is an opportunity for poets to define the space with their words. Curated and hosted by Amelia Filmer-Sankey and Andrew Galan at the Australian National University Food Coop, this You Are Here edition brings together distinct voices from Canberra, Brisbane and Austin, Texas.

The Exorcism of Megan Clune and Angela Goh is a performance which simultaneously reproduces and annihilates itself, becoming possessed in order to save itself. All of the music which has ever been learnt by the musician Megan Clune, and all the dance which has ever been learnt by the dancer Angela Goh, is transformed through the ceremony of exorcism. It interrogates ideas of authenticity and authorship, and reveals the work of the performer and the expectation of the audience. It steals from everywhere and owns everything, in order to conjure up history and channel a new future. Artists: Angela Goh and Megan Clune

Tuck yourself into your sleeping bag for an evening of mysterious storytelling, blissful projection, subtle screenings and ambient performance that will lull you into a state that exists somewhere between reality and fiction. Limited capacity, be there by 12.30am to secure your sleeping spot.

In an elegant bar, she walked in. She looked great. And I was moved to write her a poem that didn’t rhyme. And we danced through love letters that defined relationships from the 1990’s to forever.

Lip Magazine’s successful feminist readings night is ready to take on You Are Here! Featuring four women reading to a theme, we’ll make you laugh, make you cry, and hopefully make you FEMINIST. Lipreadings showcases Canberra women from across industries, backgrounds and areas of expertise; everyone has a story, and we want to hear them!

With all our face-spaces and tweeties, it is easy to see how advances in technology have affected the way we communicate and connect with each other. Pretext traces a love affair that spans multiple modes of communication – from love letters through to emails and eyephones of the imagined future. But how does the transformative nature of communication affect the language of love? Does technology make us colder, more distant or does ‘I love you’ mean the same thing in any font? Artists: Written by Phil Setren, presented by Deviant Theatre

The theme for this special edition of Lip-readings is Suddenly, a Knock: Stories of Change. You’re sitting at a home when you hear it: a knock at the door. A phone call. A sudden exchange of words. Change can come quickly. All-of-a-sudden you’re hurtling down different roads, re-imagining your life with a different lens. Artists: Lip Magazine, Cathy McGowan, Helen Baxendale, Nicky Grigg

With punk aesthetic, the swagger of Jagger, the everyman appeal of the E Street band and the egomania of the Gallagher brothers, Max waxes lyrical about the many ways that the music he loves inspires, amazes and amuses him. Rock’n’roll will never die, and if it does, Max Barker is sure as hell going down with it. Artists: Max Barker

THE TRIPLETS OF BELLEVILLE When: 8pm–9.30pm Where: Lonsdale St Roasters 23 Journeys across oceans, car chases, fat dogs, French mafia, kidnapping, jaunty music, and of course the Tour de France.

When: 8.30pm–10pm Where: The Money Bin Have you noticed that when you watch a film over, the way you experience it is never the same twice? This evening explores what happens when you see one film, played three times with performances by three different bands.

UNSEX ME When: 9.30pm–10.30pm Where: Smith’s Alternative Daughter of a theatre legend and a prima ballerina, awardwinning actress Mark Wilson dissects her own story and next job: being directed by her father as Lady Macbeth. Grand performances and whispered confessions combine as she prepares, promotes and performs the role of her life. Mark Wilson is an International Fellow of Shakespeare’s Globe Theatre, London and it shows. Like Bill Hicks, In-Yer-Face 90s playwrights and a night out at the RSC. Post-dramatic drag-theatre steeped in dark, controversial comedy. Artists: MKA | Theatre of New Writing

Louise Curham’s films are made for improvising musicians – the opposite of story films, these are living paintings. Featuring abstract imagery that’s cracked, heavily inked, bleached, deteriorated in every way possible, they are a wash of colour and texture. Fleeting photographic images appear in the odd hand-processed frame. This is bare bones cinema in extremis where narrative is a strange old firebird that won’t be killed off even by crazy sounds and every visual attempt to obliterate it. Artists: Louise Curham,
Richard Johnson,
Alister Spence, Shoeb Ahmad, Danny Wild

You’re in or you’re out. But I would prefer not to pick. Are you on top of your game? Or just a subject in it? What could make it yours? Only a little cost. Take my word.

Produced by mega-celebrities Meg O’Connell and Chris Endrey. Has fame gone to their heads? How does art hold true when it is produced in the context of expectation? Find out the answers to none of these questions, and less, at this event – the best in an already brilliant festival. Artists: In Canberra Tonight

It is insanity. The only way to see it is to be there, every night for Opening Nights. You may not quite know this group of hot artists yet but One Night Stand promises to be much more than a brief encounter with strangers. For one night only the 2014 Canberra Contemporary Art Space’s Studio Residents strut their stuff for You Are Here. Sabrina Baker, Anja Loughhead, Jacob Potter, Daniel Savage, Chris Sutevski, and Danny Wild represent a sample of Canberra’s most exciting emerging artists and this will be their first group outing. One Night Stand is an eclectic exhibition that occupies the front lines of experimental media. All six artists dare to side step traditional notions of art form and as a result, audiences can expect the unexpected. One Night Stand is the beginning of a long and meaningful relationship. Artists: Sabrina Baker, Anja Loughhead, Jacob Potter, Daniel Savage, Chris Sutevski, and Danny Wild

NEON NIGHT RIDER When: 7pm–9pm Where: Lake Burley Griffin, meet at corner Albert St and Barrine Drive Join You Are Here on the banks of Lake Burley Griffin, for our first ever incandescent community bike ride. As the sun sets, bring yourself and your bike (and your friends), covered in as much illumination as you can handle and become part of the glowing cavalcade that will stream from bridge to bridge. We’re not expecting Guinness Book of World Records winning Christmas lights, you’re welcome if it’s just you and a torch strapped to your helmet and a smile on your dial. Along the way there will be cause for pause at checkpoints where performers will entertain you with their glimmering talents and installations will put stars in your eyes. Meet us at the marshalling point or join in anytime along the bike path that runs from Commonwealth Bridge to Kings Way Bridge.

WHO IS DANI CABS? When: 7pm–7.30pm Where: The Money Bin Since its creation the photograph has had a longstanding romance with the portrait, ideally setting out to capture a sitter’s ‘real’ identity. However, the idealised notion that the photograph has the ability to capture the essence of an individual is a flawed idea. Through the medium of performative video portraits and driven by the need to understand my own identity, this project experiments with how the photographic portrait is a tool that constructs, rather than documents, a person’s identity. Who is Dani Cabs? is a series of short videos reenacting and delivering past experiences, and exploring perceived stereotypes. It works as a vehicle for self-exploration but also as an introduction of myself to you, the viewer.

WILL AND CHARLOTTE: THE FUTURE IS A FOREIGN COUNTRY When: 2pm–3pm Where: The Money Bin When we think about The Future we think of not one, but many, possibilities. Will our problems get bigger? Smaller? Morph into others? Will our solutions work? What is a solution anyway? Join us for a conversationsbased performance about The Future. “Will and Charlotte” will be a set of activities and performances grounded in scientific thought, artistic imaginings and your own philosophy, specifically designed to get us talking. There will be contested ideas and there will be pop music. Artists: Ellie Malbon

CLASS ROLL When: 3pm–4pm Where: The Money Bin Dani Cabs invites the viewer into his classroom (or living room) in the interactive performance Class Roll (or Mi Casa es Tu Casa). A mixture of question and answer lead to an eventual unravelling of stories from Dani’s past, some very true and others simply based on fact, yet exaggerated for impact. Artists: Daniel Cabrera

SHOULD YOU ART FOR FREE? When: 3pm–4pm Where: Smith’s Alternative Do you do art? Maybe you play music, or take photos, or write articles and fiction. Do you like doing it? Well, then you should do it for FREE right? Increasingly, creatives are experiencing pressure to work for free. Writers are expected to undertake endless unpaid internships with organisations as big as Crikey and major newspapers are not paying for articles. Musicians are regularly asked to play for free, photographers expected to shoot gigs and events for free, and all of this is often done in the name of ‘exposure’. Lip Magazine brings you three panelists from various creative backgrounds to dissect this issue. Should we art for free? Or should we demand payment? Should we turn down free work out of solidarity for the industry? Where do we draw the line? Artists: Farz Edraki (Lip Magazine), Nigel McRae (Canberra Musicians Club), Rosanna Stevens (Scissors Paper Pen) and Luke McGrath (independent filmmaker)


SAT 22

THE GROWNUPS When: 3.55pm–4pm Where: Smith’s Alternative Repeat Performance See Sunday 16 Artists: Pablo Latona

ANIMORPHED When: 4pm–5pm Where: The Money Bin In the late 90s, Simon Binns was obsessed with Animorphs by K.A. Applegate. This young adult sci-fi book series was about a cohort of American teens who discovered a silent alien invasion and were given the power to fight back through the ability to morph into animals. It provided much fodder for Simon’s prepubescent imagination. Animorphed is a one-man show centred around the reading of excerpts from Animorphs. Interspersed throughout are personal stories about Simon’s connection to the books. Whilst focusing on Animorphs, the show will also look more broadly at the theme of breaking the rose coloured glass through which we view childhood experiences. Simon will also attempt to morph into an adorable rabbit. Note: Live animals feature in this performance Artists: Simon Binns

PAGE VERSUS STAGE: A FISTFUL OF MONEY BIN When: 4pm–5pm Where: Smith’s Alternative In its annual mission to battle words on page versus words on stage this You Are Here brings together two Canberra poets, Doctor P. S. Cottier and Mister C. J. Bowerbird. Between them there are books, recordings, journals, a PhD on Charles Dickens, victory in the Australian Poetry Slam, and feature appearances in Australia and internationally. Both are poets, both have initials rather than whole names, both fight it out in Page versus Stage. Curated and hosted by poet Andrew Galan. Who will win? Artists: Dr P. S. Cottier and C. J. Bowerbird

CARLY AND TROY DO ‘A DOLL’S HOUSE’ OPENING NIGHTS: JUNCTIONS When: 6pm–7pm Where: The Money Bin Opening Nights is You Are Here’s first ever 24-hour exhibition series. Over five days, artists have access to our gallery space for 24 short hours. In that time they must install their exhibition, have an opening with all the pomp and ceremony they can handle, then pack down while someone else is trying to install and the festival keeps on happening. It is insanity. The only way to see it is to be there, every night for Opening Nights. By working intimately with participants Robbie Karmel creates drawings of tactile, visual, and haptic interactions. This is an open invitation to experience first hand the act and process of drawing. This exhibition explores the possibilities of non-verbal and non-visual communication, engaging both the participant and artist in an exchange through sensory experiences. Artists: Robbie Karmel

When: 7pm–8pm Where: The Money Bin A work which explores gender, sexuality, power, personal desire and nineteenth century Norway… maybe. Carly and Troy do ‘A Doll’s House’ is a show about theatre, about how we view and revere classics, about what we want, what the audience wants but mainly what Carly and Troy want. In just one hour, Carly and Troy will show you their own, personal adaptation of the Ibsen classic A Doll’s House. The realist masterwork will be dissected, torn apart and inhabited, culminating in a mash-up of pop-culture, drag, feminist analysis and a lot of butcher’s paper. After sell out seasons in Sydney, Adelaide and at Crack Theatre Festival in Newcastle, Carly and Troy are donning their heels and strutting to Canberra for one weekend only. Artists: Carly Young and Troy Reid

LADY LOLZ When: 8pm–9pm Where: Smith’s Alternative There are more men than women on the stage at most stand up comedy nights. This is a problem. There’s also never enough comedy tomfoolery at serious arts festivals. So we’re stamping down hard on the other end of the seesaw and putting on stage for your most excellent comic relief, four very hilarious, very funny people who just happen to be ladies. Stand up, storytelling and all that comes in between. With added lolz. This event may contain language that is for adult humans only. Artists: Meg O’Connell, Chris Ryan, Julia Johnson and special guests.

THE SPHERES AV SHOW When: 8pm–9.30pm Where: The Money Bin The Spheres are a cadre of experimental musicians and filmmakers who soundtrack the light thrown from projectors with their distinctive brand of cadence, noise and melody. Drawing from the disparate tropes of silent cinema, video installation, sound art and post rock, the AV collective’s current creative preoccupations include the melancholy of memory, capitalism and the sea.
