The Substation is one of the best Melburnian promoters of multi-disciplinary contemporary arts, and their Season One program for next year only reaffirms that. 

The program is jam-packed with a diverse and international range of theatre, sound art, interactive exhibitions, installations, creative collaborations, as well as artist residencies.
 
Ellen Fullen and composer/cellist Theresa Wong kick off the program with Long String Instrument, creating a mesmerising sound experience for the audience.
 
The Tribe by Urban Theatre Projects follows that up, featuring cellist and composer Oonagh Sherrard alongside Hazem Shammas. The performance will invite people to listen to an Arab-Australian story in an intimate backyard.
 
American experimental pop group Xiu Xiu will also perform their own rendition of the iconic Twin Peaks soundtrack, while ONO will provide a part music performance, part installation storytelling experience.
 
There'll be a heap of art too, like contemporary artist Brook Andrew's The Cell installation, VCA graduates Emma Collard and Rafaella McDonald's Pose Like This exhibition, the non-for-profit art space CAVES expanding to The Substation, and Phuong Ngo's collection of war photography in Conflicted: Works From The Vietnam Archive Project.
 
Don't forget Madeleine Flynn and Tim Humphrey’s The Megaphone Project, where red megaphones will fill the venue, as well as Bunker returning to celebrate four years of Melbourne's electronic music. 

Delve into the contemporary art world with The Substation's 2017 Season One program, running from Friday January 27 till Friday June 23.
