About The Series
‘Rear Window’ performance series attempts to challenge both the audience and performer, focusing the invited gaze through a residential window exposes participants to the "social contagion" of acting as voyeurs/spectacle; an attempt to explore the very act of looking and being looked at once isolated from the gallery/theater setting and planted in the everyday realm.
The window serves as a frame of the performance as well as the surface separating between audience and performer, giving a film-like experience of the event.
This series follows last year’s ‘Wednesdays’ weekly performance broadcast series, hosting performances which rotated between four domestic spaces of the Glasshouse- living room, kitchen, bath and bed- each offering a different angle on practicing, hosting, teaching and learning performance.
The previous year Glasshouse initiated the Neo Domesticity Performance Art Festival- a durational 100 consecutive hours performance festival, hosting works by 50 local and international artists all happening at the Glasshouse residence.
With 'Rear Window' Glasshouse aims to further their exploration in performance at the domestic sphere.
