Weave of Secrets

All the hard work paid off as 407 Finch was alive with explorers on Saturday night- thanks so much to everyone that came along! It was a real mixture, from curious neighbours to other artists and even a gorgeous little girl, all who adorned the walls with a little piece of themselves. It was really beautiful looking at all the written and spoken secrets and drawings on the wall and we can't wait to put it all together for Stage 2- the exhibition!

Thanks again to everyone involved for making it a truly special and creative night at the 'theatre.'

More photos to come soon! x

PS- For those who are interested, some of the music playing in Lauren's 'travelling' part of installation were: Icelandic band mum, Swedish singer El Perro Del Mar & Melbourne funkster Chelsea Wilson.

A bit about us and what we've been up to...

Smiljana Glisovic is in her first year as a PhD candidate at RMIT (Cinema). She has published short stories and arts reviews for university presses and online journals, performed, written and produced live theatre, video installations and short films.
She is currently a reviewer for Arts Hub, and you can read one of her latest fiction pieces in Island Magazine.

Alister Mew is sound guy extraordinaire, studying at RMIT and working on numerous projects, including interning at MTC and Malthouse with Darrin Verhagen and work in the recent Liquid Architecture sound festival.
He has recently done sound for the show Smudged, now at the Brisbane Festival, and is about to begin on sound design for the film 'Safe' and an interactive vocal installation. All alongside his Weave Length duties!

Abbie Matthews is currently completing her 3rd year in a Bachelor of Visual Art at the University of Ballarat. She is a visual artist, performer and theatre-maker, most recently seen in the Yarowee Productions reading of Cloudstreet and the Ballarat Arts Foundation 'Alere' exhibition currently showing at Arthur Gallery.

Amy Tsilemanis is working towards becoming a 'master' of theatre at La Trobe University, looking at performance in non-theatre venues (hence the Finch St Installation, see below for details!). You can read some of her fiction here. She also presents the weekly radio show The Tinderbox, with Lauren Daly, playing an eclectic mix of music and inviting artists on to share their work across various artforms.

More from us soon x

407 Finch St: An Interactive Installation. Saturday October 2nd

Join us for an exploration of public and private space, inner and outer worlds, presented by Weave Length Productions, devised by Abbie Matthews, Amy Tsilemanis & Lauren Daly.

For one night only interactive sculpture, video projection, and audio works invite you to explore, as 407 Finch offers up her secrets in exchange for yours…

Visit any time between 7.30 and 9.30 pm, Saturday October 2nd (last entry at 9.15) then join us for a drink.

Entry by donation but please RSVP to 852 980

407 Finch will creak with the longing to divulge, twirl in the robes we have dressed her in, speak with you in hushed tones…

We look forward to seeing you there!
There will also be the opportunity to take part in the second part of this cross-artform project, in an exhibition of works drawn from and inspired by the installation.
We also hope that 407 Finch St will begin a series of creative gatherings where artists across various practices can meet and discuss and share their work, so get in touch if you'd like to know more!
