MASCinprogress is a raw, punk, sonic conjuring of queerness by Adelaide electronic music and performance duo GIRL. It follows their acclaimed 2018 show, ‘Sentients’, which was the first in a trilogy of multimedia performance works focusing on themes of climate justice, masculinity and queer identity.
Featuring music from their forthcoming debut album, MASCinprogress uses experimental sound, spoken word, projection and movement to wreak havoc on the concept of masculinity before gaffer-taping it back together again.
MASCinprogress is an invitation for audiences to experience a three-quarters-baked version of the work before GIRL enter their last creative development at The SUBSTATION in October. Critical Mass presents an opportunity to give the work a test run across two nights at the Brunswick Mechanics Institute as part of Melbourne Fringe 2019. A way of sharing the creative process. Somewhere between a showing and a show. Nothing half-arsed…you’ll get what you paid for.
