LADY EXAMPLE is a dance – of bodies, words, and women.
Created and performed by Alice Dixon, Caroline Meaden and William McBride, with an ensemble of artists, Lady Example undertakes a deranged and exquisite stocktake of our histories and mythologies to propose a litany of new, glorious, shuddering worlds. Combining contemporary dance, text and theatre, this tender and sly performance considers the historical and contemporary feminine – on our stages, on our screens, and in the performance of everyday life – looking at the lady examples that made us, and the lady examples we are making still.
Presented by THE SUBSTATION and NEXT WAVE. Supported by City of Melbourne through the Boyd Studio, Creative Victoria, Besen Family Foundation, Creative Partnerships Australia and the Australian Government through Australia Council, its arts funding and advisory body.

Do those who object to contemporary art prefer community parades?
Howl is a celebration of 15 significant moments in art history. A ritual procession starring a sculpture of Captain Cook, thousands of sunflower seeds and a killer whale named Tilikum. A requiem that is unquestionably queer, arguably dangerous and probably obscene. Performed by three women. Scored by Mozart himself.
Created by Willoh S. Weiland, Lara Thoms and Lz Dunn, Howl commemorates controversy – from the furore aroused over a feminist self-portrait and the outrage at a rainbow being burnt repeatedly in a public square, to the indignation of artists arrested on suspicion of bio-terrorism. Howl energetically probes the reactions art can invoke, and the perspective that history permits.
“The assault on the senses destabilises familiarity and renders the viewer vulnerable to the uncertainty of space and time.”
