Performers: Rhiannon Newton & Aisling Donovan

In March the WA Museum will transform its temporary exhibition space into a living environment of dancing bodies. Accidental Monsters of Meaning is a live-art installation examining the monsters of our time and where they are leading us.

In a room filled with display cases five dancers twist and turn through imagery of consumer culture, are remote controlled by the audience, travel through an arctic wonderland and converse only in advertising slogans. Choreographer Aimee Smith invites you to navigate through this space and ask the question, what will take for our species to survive?
