 "wildly emotive music"
"completely immersive experience that explored and exposed outbursts of emotion in a safe and reassuring manner"

Insultations follows on from Rose's Complimentary Caravan as another chapter exploring the 'power of words'.

This performance/installation premiered at the Natimuk Frinj Biennale, November 2017.

Bathe in a tummy-rumbling soundtrack performed by five electric guitarists (earplugs supplied).
 
Get negative thoughts off your chest in a dark protected and nurturing environment as you are guided through
a series of ceremonies, each with a specific purpose to get you to a lighter place.

 
This project was supported by Regional Arts Victoria, Musuem of Innocence Mildura & Natimuk Frinj Biennale.

THE NEXT VERSION OF INSULTATIONS IS CURRENTLY BEING PLANNED. STAY TUNED...
