Just announced: Marcus Ian McKenzie brings a furious, psychedelic and absurd contemporary performance to The Substation in The Crying Room: Exhumed, showing 20-24 February.

Tickets on sale via The Substation at 10am, Friday 19 January.

A crying room is a small, soundproof chamber at the back of a theatre auditorium where you can experience an event via one-way glass and live audio feed. As the name suggests, it’s a place you can go if you are crying so as not to disturb the audience. But what if a crying room was actually a site dedicated to emotional extraction? A place not to conceal tears, but to invoke them?

Created by Marcus Ian McKenzie with Anna Nalpantidis, Derrick Duan, Maria Moles, Romanie Harper and Richard Vabre, and developed on-location at The Substation, this is a deeply personal and form-bending adaptation of McKenzie’s award-winning online work The Crying Room, originally presented to audiences in Lockdown via Zoom in the wake of McKenzie's brother's death.

As 2023 draws to a close, we're looking back on this year's program – and extending a huge thanks to the artists, audience, staff, and donors who made it all possible. Your support is fundamental to helping us do what we do.

If you enjoyed a show at The Substation this year, tickets are already on sale to some select 2024 events, including the Q***r PHOTO Opening Night and Canadian electronic composer Tim Hecker.

For now, here's a look back at some 2023 highlights:

1. REALREEL
REALREEL, an exhibition of dance on screen curated by Melanie Lane and Jo Loyd, reflected on the language of dance on film as an archive of memory, ephemerality and imagination.

2. Five Self-Vibrating Regions of Intensities
A study of sound as energy, these installations by Gail Priest and Thomas Burless explored the transmission of sonic energy through materials.

3. Nuclear Waste Dump
This series of six works by Tahlia Palmer examined the tensions around proposed nuclear waste storage near so-called Kimba, South Australia, and referenced the 1956 nuclear tests at Maralinga.

4. Belief System
Belief System, an installation by Adriano Cortese and Anna Tregloan that transmitted thousands of recorded beliefs across the Main Space.

5. Lea Bertucci
New York-based artist Lea Bertucci generated an utterly dynamic and intense sonic realm, using wind instruments and looping in her live performance.

6. WAKE
Long-time friends of The Substation THE RABBLE co-presented WAKE as part of Fringe Festival. Eight older women from Melbourne’s West spoke proud and candid about their bodies, ageing, living, loneliness and death.

7. Brolga: A Q***r Koori Wonderland
Another Fringe Festival co-presented program, Brolga took over all three levels of The Substation building in a party like no other!

8. PIECES
Lucy Guerin Inc returned to The Substation, co-presenting three beautiful, completely different, but wholly electrifying works from Amrita Hepi, Luke George and Harrison Ritchie-Jones.

We hope you enjoyed a show with us this year, and we look forward to welcoming you back into The Substation in 2024.

Love,
The Substation Team 💚

Just announced: renowned Canadian composer Tim Hecker lands at The Substation on Saturday 16 March, 2024.

A limited number of early release tickets will go on sale next Tuesday 12 December – subscribe to our mailing list to be notified as soon as tickets go on sale.

Hecker's tectonic plates of sound have become a blueprint for a generation of artists interested in the potentials of dynamic harmony and density. Operating with an intensity shared by few others, his performances are recognised for their singular use of volume and sound pressure to saturate and heighten the embodied experience of the music.

Joining Hecker in The Substation Main Space is Yuin musician JWPATON, whose recently released record Structures alternates sounds and field recordings gathered from both the natural and the human-made worlds to create rich and thick, time-stretched padded atmospheres.

We’re thrilled to announce that The Substation will be part of the PHOTO 2024 International Festival of Photography.

We’ll be presenting two exhibitions as part of Q***r PHOTO, a collaboration presented by Midsumma and PHOTO 2024: ‘Alteration’ by FAFSWAG arts collective, and ‘TBWWWTB (To Be What We Want To Be)’ by Vic Bakin.

‘Alteration’ is the culmination of ten years of archival practice, and two years of co-design, co-curation, research and production created by FAFSWAG, an Aotearoa-based Q***r Polynesian arts collective. Contemplating ancestry and legacy, reclaiming stolen narratives, speculating fictional futures and redefining the cultural image of Q***r Pacific bodies, living on stolen land, ‘Alteration’ seeks to break a now predictable and fixed set of colonial determinants. The exhibition opens in The Substation Galleries on Saturday 27 January.

‘TBWWWTB (To Be What We Want To Be)’ by Vic Bakin is a celebration of Ukraine’s q***r community. After decades of Soviet forbiddance and suppression, the q***r scene in Ukraine has sprouted from the underground. The exhibition will be displayed on The Substation Galleries from Saturday 27 January.
