V/ is a multi-disciplinary collective founded by Mele Broomes in 2011. V/ curates and produces dance, live performance, video work and practical workshops in collaboration with various dance artists.
Responding to Sonic Séance, a V/ performance, Sonic Séance: The Gathering is an exhibition bringing together the artistic practices of choreographer, director and performer Mele Broomes; film-maker and visual artist Jen Martin; actress, singer/songwriter and composer Patricia Panther; researcher and visual artist Ashanti Harris; musician, DJ, artist Letitia Pleiades; as well as invited artists Nene Camara & Angel Ng, Shaheeda Sinckler, Divine Tasinda, Bea Webster, Claricia Parinussa, and Raman Mundair. Their communal work aims to integrate resistance into the condition of being controlled, governed, pre-identified and spokenfor.
Looking at the past, present and future, subverting elements used to shape and manipulate for the imperialist gaze, this exhibition is an expression of anger, solidarity and euphoria against the dominance of cultural imperialism. Encompassing live performance, audio, video and text works, Sonic Séance: The Gathering is an immersive, warm and inviting space, and a continuously moving experience.
The video works perform as capsules of thought and imagination, channelling voices and spirit interlocutors.
Live and pre-recorded music scores expand themes of spirituality, female empowerment, witchcraft, afro-futurism, ancestral heritage, body work and ritual practices.
