Opening 6pm Friday 14 May
Choked air begins to propagate, as an unworldly figure speaks to us through the sounds of screaming balloons. This message-in-a-virtual-bottle summons our breath to unite in a hypnotic coda. What do you believe? Is it an enchantment, elixir, ritual, or something more sinister?

Whilst we continue to breathe, more and more objects continue to be expelled and expired. Are we suffocating, or can disposed objects be reborn? How can we live in a world where we consume more than we need?

Disposed and Aerosol are multimedia works that were recorded during Melbourne lockdown in August 2020. Produced and written by Michael Sollis and performed by Thea Rossen, they are influenced by elements from their Milk Carton Confessions, where Canberran Gillian Schwab contributed to elements of the design.

Aerosol was commissioned by Tura New Music.
