The Big Hair Show

and the earth sighed

In an immersive audiovisual installation that re-imagines the relationship between nature and culture, Sydney based artists Josephine Starrs and Leon Cmielewski configure the land itself as active, not neutral, and able to speak about our human impacts upon it.

​Using imagery captured by dr​​ones, detailed aerial views of Australian landscapes and waterways are dynamically manipulated in ways that reveal their underlying fragility; while Alex Davies' surround-soundscape invites contemplation of the impact of climate change on natural ecologies.

'and the earth sighed’ premiered in Melbourne at Arts House in July 2016.

The installation can be presented as a large-scale installation or wall mounted multi screen work. Watch the documentation here

Premiering at the Sydney Festival 2017, ‘The Big Hair Show’ is a wig-filled, non-stop variety show. Presented on the outdoor Meriton Festival Village Stage, ‘The Big Show’ delighted audiences with a heady mix of cabaret, colour-enhanced acrobatics, dance and music. Hosted by the inimitable Bob Downe and directed by the fabulous Leah Shelton and Lisa Fa’alafi, this is upbeat comical cabaret with a coiffured twist.

’The Big Hair Show’ is a variety hour that incorporates guest aerialists, acrobats, singers and dancers and can be adapted for both outdoor and indoor settings.
