RISING: Bang Stop

01 June 2022, 7:00pm7:45pm
Location La Trobe Reading Room
The Dome, Level 3

RISING's artist-in-residence, Jim White and long-term collaborator and guitarist Emmett Kelly (aka The Double) are joined by brand-new collaborator Jo Lloyd to create a physically and musically intense catharsis to open RISING festival.

Jim White and Emmett Kelly bring the background of countless uninvented rock and roll songs right to the front.

Traversing the space is choreographer Jo Lloyd and her dancers—their intricate patterns loop and persist, working against and with the sound.

In this takeover of a traditionally silent and reverent space—music and dance strike a balance between perpetual stasis and perpetual motion.
