Two dancer/choreographers, slightly past emerging and maturing into fine mid-career torpor met for coffee this morning in East St Kilda, a day into the blazing hangover of the Labour victory in the state elections. Amidst much of the usual elite art conversation by the inner-city elite artists who do not like rural eisteddfods and are quite aware that the ‘$5 million spare change for rural eisteddfods’ platform is precisely what lost the Liberals this election, a new performance was, how to say, imagined.

Funding to mount remains a difficult issue, but in the interests of addressing ABC bias we have already done the publicity. Remember, a vote for the Liberals is a vote against and elite Melbourne art.
