1. Welcome to the New Grand Narrative Artist Profiles, a series of sweet little vids we shot with some of our Kickstart artists about their projects and what inspired them.

    Based around our festival theme, New Grand Narrative, the videos are just little taste of what’s to come in the lead up to festival launch.

    Our very first profile is from dancer and choreographer James Welsby, recorded at the Treasury Gardens on Spring Street, where James attended his first Midsumma Carnival as a teenager. Through the development his Next Wave Festival project HEX, James explored how the generation born during the HIV/ AIDS crisis can comprehend its impact on contemporary queer identity, traversing issues of health, community and history.

    Next up is visual artist Phuong Ngo, whose 2014 Next Wave Festival project, Article 14.1, sees him living off the limited rations his parent's had as boat people. Perhaps ironically recorded at a Vietnamese restaurant in Richmond, Phuong speaks of his fathers experience as a people smuggler in the 1980's.

  4. The latest in our New Grand Narrative Artist Profile series is dancer Raghav Handa, who describes his migration as a young man from India to boarding school in Sydney.The objects he carried in his suitcase - a frying pan, spices, a sewing kit - became potent memories of home and a way to connect with his family history.

    Tukre', Raghav's new dance-theatre work for the Next Wave festival 2014, looks at what we really bring with us when we move to a new place - as memories are mapped through objects, traditions and rights of passage.

  5. This New Grand Narrative Profile features Brisbane-based collective Golden Solution, who use home-made mechanical installations, alcohol and house music to examine notions of compliance, collective morality and surveillance.

    For their Next Wave Festival 2014 project Altertruism, Andrew McLellan, Michael Candy and Kiah Reading present a series of social experiments; including a thumping night of club music, a civilian symposium and a demonstration of unmanned drones. Good times and party vibes are laced with provocative questions, testing our understandings of contemporary surveillance, peer pressure and personal accountability.
