PACT SALON: CURATOR CARLA ZIMBLER and MIKAELA STAFFORD
16 March | PACT
PACT Salon: SLURP! is an exploration of sensory response and nostalgia, engaging with the five senses to fully engage and immerse the body in a liminal space. It encourages self-discovery, asking the audience to peer inwards, meditate on sensations of touch, taste, sight, smell and sound as they weave between A/V chambers that inspire dialogue and emotional connectedness. SLURP! is both a study of sensory processing and an environment that provides sanctum from external noise and visual disturbance.
ARTIST CALL OUT Carla and Mikaela are looking for early career performance, movement, sound, visual and media artists to join a stellar line up of artists whose works trigger and stimulate our senses.

PACT Salons are one-night mini-festivals showcasing new works by Sydney's most compelling early career performance, visual and media artists. Salons are where art, party and critical dialogue collide to a unique interactive experience. Salons encourage artists and audiences to be curious, daring and inquisitive.
