Theatre & Visual Arts: TRESPASSING

1 – 22 February @ Spectrum Project Space ·
Presented by Existence Theatre ·

Existence Theatre presents TRESPASSING at Edith Cowan University’s Spectrum
Project Space for Fringe World 2019.

Existence Theatre (Bello Benischauer and Elisabeth M Eitelberger) is the recipient
of the 2019 Spectrum Project Space Artist Residency. This annual program allows
the recipient one-month’s access to Spectrum Project Space at ECU’s Mount
Lawley Campus as a working studio, with the aim of exhibiting new works in
the gallery at the end of the residency. This program is now in its sixth year.

TRESPASSING is based on four different female characters, who speak about the
complexity of gender linked to identity, social interaction, power and oppression;
about the interaction of gender with race, class, culture, religion, sexuality and
consumerism. In monologues, they give insight into their contradicting but daily
routines. While one indulges in a compulsive desire to shop, another tries to build
all her image around her higher education. And whereas one suffers from being
born into a wealthy milieu, another crosses borders fleeing her country to simply

Known for creating immersive and multi-sensory experiences, Existence Theatre
will again take their audience on an intimate journey to celebrate the
transcultural qualities inherent in contemporary society.

For the past two decades Bello and Elisabeth have utilised video, sound
composition, performance and performance writing to reflect upon particular
socio-political issues and the individuals dealing with them. They create
individual ensembles depending on the work. With projects around the world
they have formed a strong interest in how to comment on transcultural
lifestyle and cultural specifics. They have created work spanning from
video poetry, video/sound installations, interventions in public space,
performance lectures to critical theatre productions with a strong socio-
political message.

Undeniably influenced by developments and currents of European Postdramatic Theatre  and Performance Art, they have a unique way in how to approach themes and audiences, addressing them by raising questions, inviting them to find their own individual access rather than attempting to provide answers with the presented work.

The TRESPASSING exhibition and performances will take place from
Friday 1 February to Friday 22 February at Spectrum Project Space,
Mount Lawley Campus, Edith Cowan University.
