Action/Response

Hannah Mathews and artists

Presented by Arts House and Hannah Mathews

Over two nights, Action/ Response transforms North Melbourne’s Errol Street precinct into a site of exploration, conversation and encounter. Featuring new works by twenty talented creators, each evening brings a different selection of site-specific experiences.

Through dance, visual art and sound, and inspired by texts from writers Ramona Koval and Chris Johnston, Action/ Response takes the familiar physical movements of ‘falling’ and ‘turning’ and sheds new light on both their ubiquity and their symbolism. Conceived by curator Hannah Mathews, Action/Response invites reflection on these common bodily movements, reinterpreted by established and emerging artists from a wide range of backgrounds and disciplines.

Take the time to wander Errol Street’s unique streetscape over two evenings to discover each work in its specially chosen location. Look high, look low, listen carefully. There is action everywhere!
