Let inhibitions go ... and fly
FLOWN: it's a "fairy-clown" and an art-meets-theatre production being billed as a "self-guided hallucination".
That sparked your interest, didn't it?
It's out there, sure, and unlike anything that has before graced Lismore.
It's also a chance to play and get in touch with the "non-conformist, non-socialised" animal within.
It's the work of director Peter Lehner and the Rainbow Glee Club, a Lismore based group of creative gays and lesbians who are the Flowns.
They are working up to a musical theatre production on June 8, but will preview their work at Gallery 33.3 at Keen St on Saturday.
There you can expect two and three-dimensional performance-art installations designed to showcase and introduce Flown to the "Lovemore" community.
"(Flown is) that part of you that is tugging at your business shirt and saying let's go out and play in the sun," Mr Lehner explained.
"It is that part of you that is not having to meet responsibilities, and wants to experience the wonder of life again.
"It is totally a whole different world and you will be invited to play in that world."
Mr Lehner explained that all the installations on Saturday would be interactive.
"One of them is a gigantic beast that covers you in black so you get caught up in a big cuddle, if you like," he said.
"Another art work will have falling water and there will be projections onto the water.
"Another is actually quite muddy, you might have to walk in mud, which will be fun."
The installation will assist Rainbow Glee Club performers prepare for their production in June. Flown will ultimately also be taken on the road and hopefully performed in Sydney.
"Experience an expansion of your creative state and have an altered state experience," Mr Lehner said.
