Get intimate with the beast within through the multisensory interactive street art project Beastly. Helmed by Tutti artistic director Pat Rix and Andres Busrianto, director of the annual Geneng Street Art Festival in Java, Beastly is an ambitious two-year international project that brings together artists and differently-abled performers from across Australia, Indonesia and Malaysia.
For GTF, Busrianto, Rix and curator Patricia Wozniak from Tutti will team up with artist/designers Mawar, Nina Rupena, Annabelle Ng and Stepping Stone Work Centre, an Asia Community Service that trains people living with disability in traditional local and creative arts. The interactive installations created for Beastly will transport audiences through a portal to a secret wonderland of animalistic temples where they can discover and engage with their beasts within. During the first weekend of the festival, these temples will play host to intimate animal themed performances created by directors Juha Vanhakartano and Julian Jaensch with Tutti performers James Kurtze, Joel Hartgen and Lorcan Hopper.
