National experimental arts hothouse
Adhocracy is Vitalstatistix’s national hothouse, supporting the creative development of new experimental and multidisciplinary arts projects. Artists from around Australia join us to create and converse in one space (our beautiful, heritage-listed home, Waterside, in Port Adelaide) over the first weekend of Spring.
Selected artists spend four days in an open studio environment developing new work, which can span theatre, live art, dance, sound, installation, visual art and more. All projects are in the early stages of the process of making; participating artists are experimenting with ideas and art forms, as well as how audiences experience their works. Audiences engage with the artists and their creative process through a public program of artist talks and work-in-progress showings.
A two-week residency program is also offered – this year’s residency is lead by U.S First Nations dance artist Emily Johnson, developing her new work Kinstillatory Mappings in Light and Dark Matter.
Adhocracy is a festival of ideas meets intense art camp meets magic house party. Get amongst some of Australia’s most exciting established and emerging makers of Australian contemporary culture, art, performance and commentary.
