Kate Power


Australian premiere
Presented by Vitalstatistix

What happens if the body knows?

In Vanessa Bell’s painting ‘Bedroom, Gordon Square’, hung in the Art Gallery of South Australia, a woman sits naked on the edge of a bed. Her body language and lack of facial features suggest she is caught in a moment of private reflection.

Kate Power’s Bedroom is a debut performance artwork evoking reflection, justice, and following the gut.

Drawing on performed text, choreography and sculptural installation, Bedroom extends Kate’s acclaimed practice from sculpture and video, into a compelling live terrain.

Bedroom explores the space of internalising the pervasive domination that women experience and the embodied expulsion of anger and grief that many seek; delivered through a visceral and charged performance that is full of humour and grace.
