A no-holds barred performance at the intersection of parade, protest and procession. Howl is a glorious commemoration of controversy and a celebration of the censored starring a sculpture of Captain Cook, thousands of sunflower seeds and a killer whale named Tilikum. A requiem that is unquestionably queer, arguably dangerous and probably obscene. Performed by women. Scored by Mozart.

From Piss Christ to depictions of sexuality and the human body that have challenged the status quo, to moments of civil disobedience, these are works that have questioned the power structures of the world around us. Howl energetically probes the reactions art can invoke and the perspective that history permits. This is art that has challenged the acceptable, and changed the conversation forever.

Created by APHIDS, one of Australia’s leading experimental arts companies, Howl boldly questions who gets to determine art’s legitimacy.

Presented by Art Gallery of South Australia, Vitalstatistix, APHIDS and RCC as part of the 2020 Adelaide Biennial of Art: Monster Theatres.

Created and performed by Willoh S. Weiland, Lara Thoms and Lz Dunn.
