Cliffhanger

Angela Goh and Holly Childs (NSW & SA)

Cliffhanger is a multidisciplinary work across performance, installation and text, investigating the cliffhanger and the state of suspension as an omnipresent facet of contemporary anxiety.

Holly Childs is an Adelaide-based multidisciplinary artist and writer, recently based in Moscow and Amsterdam. Her research involves filtering stories of planetary computation through frames of ecology, earth, memory, poetry and light. Angela Goh is a Sydney-based dancer and choreographer working in theatres, galleries and telepathic spaces. Her work considers the body in relationship to commodity, materiality, technology and feeling.

The artists have previously collaborated, including on Angela’s acclaimed performance work Uncanny Valley Girl which undertook a development with Adhocracy in 2016; this new process brings them back together to co-author a timely new work.
