Program 31-23 Arts Friday on Eastside

What does it feel like to know you are dead? Richard James Allen reflects a lifelong engagement with Buddhist and Yogi Philosophies in Text Messages from the Universe. The Gala screening and book launch is an alluring, and unsettling images, music and words that is set to transport you through an afterlife encounter. Drawing inspiration from The Tibetan Book of the Dead, reimagined in a cinematic blend of text and dance action, it evokes a dislocated interval of consciousness, an intermediate state, between death and rebirth. A state known as the ‘Bardo’. Ultra-Sonic is an exhibition on at the Sydney College of the Arts, that is an unconventional musical and sonic lines through the flotsam and jetsam of the complications of installation art to create a new territory. Curators, Joyce Hinterding and David Haines drive us through the exhibition while stationary in their parked car with seatbelts on. Surry Hills @ Play Festival is on this month, aims to support the local economy, community development through the sense of play. Reactivate Consulting are the organisation behind the initiative and we find out more from Susie Rugg. The Pyrmont Art Prize and Festival story will run on Friday, 7 May 2023.

Produced and presented by Angela Stretch, the program participants acknowledge the custodians of the Gadigal lands from which the program has been produced and broadcasts from at Eastside Radio.
