EVERYTHING IS EVERYTHING is a live performance ritual that explores our innate desire for human connection. A collaboration between actor/artist Andrew Fraser and interior architect Victoria Punturere, the performance asks how relayed or misinterpreted words and gestures can sever our ability to connect—and how we reconnect.

Performers from dance and theatre backgrounds partake in an evolving social ritual that intends to create a new physical language for total human connection, the choreography being informed by decaying movement and speech patterns. The performers, in costumes by Kit Valerio and Liam Ramirez, engage in a dialogue with materials and with the MPavilion, transforming the space into an abstracted social landscape. This responsive and receptive performance connects movement, architecture and the audience, pushing at the boundaries of all three.

This event is part of our our youth expressions of interest, engaging collaborators aged 15–25.

Wominjeka (Welcome). We acknowledge the Yaluk-ut Weelam as the traditional custodians of the land on which we meet. Yaluk-ut Weelam means ‘people of the river camp’ and is connected with the coastal land at the head of Port Phillip Bay, extending from the Werribee River to Mordialloc. The Yaluk-ut Weelam are part of the Boon Wurrung, one of the five major language groups of the greater Kulin Nation. We pay our respects to the land, their ancestors and their elders—past, present and to the future.
