What's On

  • This article was produced in collaboration with Vitalstatistix.

In Vitalstatistix’s final presentation for 2022, the organisation presents Sightings – a new performance and portrait of place by acclaimed artist Gabrielle Nankivell and her collaborators.


23—26 November
Waterside Workers Hall
11 Nile Street, Port Adelaide 5015
Tickets and more info

Sightings explores personal and collective mythologies of a town through crowd-sourced tales, choreographed interventions, video works, and public performance.

This new work takes Gabrielle’s choreographic practice to site-specific research and storytelling. Over the course of a residency, the artists – accompanied by the enigmatic character known as Creature – will create an uncanny portrait of Yerta Bulti Port Adelaide.

Embracing unreliable narratives, imagination and haunting, the power of community enthusiasts, and a bent towards the weird, Sightings culminates in a surprising and enchanting performance experience.

Darkly humorous, deeply honouring, and full of warmth, these performance events conjure the curiosity of visiting a private home museum meets backyard film screening meets charming community ritual.
