An exclusive premiere of a new immersive audiovisual performance, taking the audience on a hallucinogenic dark carnival ride exploring the slippage between parapsychology and technology.

Interweaving science and superstition, philosophy and pulp through sound composition, live 16mm film projection and light environments, Breaching Transmissions invites the audience to enter a hypnotic, sensory zone. Through themes of ‘transmission' and ‘medium', this live performance implicates the audience as a participant by harnessing abstract infrared camera images, and reconfiguring the typical performer-technology-audience relationship.

Featuring UK electronic musician and sound artist Spatial, Breaching Transmissions is expanded cinema artist Sally Golding's sensory assault probing the ‘haunted' in modern media, inhabiting the space between illusion and perception to manifest spectral horror and the etheric double.

Cinema reimagined, Golding's performances are cacophonic, overdriven and trance-like states blending expanded cinema, sound art and performance.

This live multimedia performance contains stroboscopic lighting and is non-seated.

This project has been assisted by the Australian Government through the Australia Council, its arts funding and advisory body.
