Urban Dream Capsule

Urban Dream CapsuleFrom Australia

"Superb and challenging piece of performance art" The Age

See what's in-store at Myer when the four extraordinary performance artists of the Urban Dream Capsule take up residence inside the Bourke Street windows for the duration of the Games, living their day-to-day lives in full view! With their Richard Jeziorny-designed bedroom, living room, kitchen and bathroom visible to the world 24 hours a day, their simplest tasks - sleeping, washing, grooming, cooking – will become endurance events during this fourteen day performance marathon. Watch as our intrepid heroes turn everyday living into the most entertaining of artforms, and form relationships with their audience that break the pane-barrier.

Who can forget the debut of this now world-famous troupe with its sensational two-week installation in the Myer windows in Bourke Street for the 1996 Melbourne International Festival of the Arts? Since then the Urban Dream Capsule has insinuated itself - to widespread critical acclaim – all around the world. And now artists Neil Thomas, Andrew Morrish, Nick Papas and David Wells return to their hometown for a special Commonwealth Games tenth anniversary performance.
