Tangent: The Club - 18 March, 6pm
In 1970, seven years before The Club was first performed, Laura Mulvey wrote the seminal essay Visual Pleasure and Narrative Cinema, in which she pioneered the concept of ‘The Male Gaze’. She posited that most art is consumed and created through a distinctly male lens…we think that’s changing. In anticipation of our hilarious reinvention of David Williamson’s classic comedy, we’re asking the question, ‘what does it look like when art is created from a female perspective? Does it change and does it even matter?’
We’ll be joined by writer and small screens editor of The Big Issue, Aimee Knight, Associate Professor of English and Creative Writing at Adelaide University, Mandy Treagus, and emerging performance artist Chiara Gabrielli to talk all things gender ahead of The Club hitting the stage.
Location: Bradley Forum, Level 5 of the Hawke Building on the City West campus, 50-55 North Terrace, Adelaide.
Time: Arrive at 5:30pm for light refreshments for a 6pm start. The talk will conclude at 7pm.
