Politics of Change

Politics of Change is a multi-media presentation on the work of Australian performance artist Mike Mullins.  The presentation contains a chapter on the 1984 ‘Ceiling Funding Debate’ which became national news and divided the performing arts community across Australia. The multi-media presentation is based on the extensive archives of the artist. It presents, for the first time, historical documents that have never been discussed in public until now.
Mike’s journey as an artist starts in 1973 with the opening of the Sydney Opera House and his meetings with Jerzy Grotowski and finishes with the early years of the Performance Space, which he founded in 1983.
 It is a highly original presentation about historically significant events that laid the foundation for contemporary performance practice today.
