Shadow's Light

Fri 7 Dec 8-9.30pm & Sat 8 Dec 2-5pm
Testing Grounds 1-23 City Rd, Southbank

Shadow's Light a free event hosted by TYC and Multicultural Arts Victoria , draws on tradition Javanese trance practices from the Royal Court of Central Java - Scrimpi and the unharnessed ecstatic trance practices of East Java - Bentengan/Bull-Trance; a blending of disciplines that include contemporary dance and improvised music.

Mesmerising and without compromise, it's a deep meditation on basic elements of living, quietude alongside the ecstatic, and you can catch it on Friday 7 Dec (8-9.30pm) and Sat 8 Dec (2-5pm) 2018 at the Testing Grounds, 1 City Rd, Southbank. On the Saturday, stay a while or come for the whole afternoon of Shadow's Light - Light Works as short solo and group works by local and international artists occupy spaces within Testing Grounds, falling in with Shadow's Light theme of light works.
