Ten of our artists, Katrina Chandra, Daniell Flood, Andy Freer, Stéphane Hisler, Mitch Jones, Lachlan Plain, KT Prescott, Rebecca Rutter, James Wilkinson and Nick Wilson, and the world’s largest puppet are now heading to Brazil for Virada Cultural May 21-22, São Paulo’s non-stop, free, 24 hour party all over the city.

What better than a giant party for Everybody’s first international outing?

A Note from Andy, Artistic Director

EB 2015 2

To everybody who has viewed our video of Everybody, to all the lovers and haters and the WTF’ers.

I’m so excited by the fact this video has reached millions of people all over the world, albeit a 2 minute clip from a 2 hour LIVE performance art piece. A piece that explores the one thing that all humans have in common: the human body. Naively simple concept maybe; beautiful, shocking, incredibly complex is what defines the human body and our relationship with it. Children whose parents and guardians allowed them to view this work expressed their joy, fear and innocent curiosity. Poos and wees, penises and vaginas, bums and boobs, we deal with these human body parts and functions multiple times daily and children in particular think it’s hilarious. If you’re wondering, any expression of sexuality is most definitely kept for an adults only audience.

Free the human body and maybe one day everybody can be free.

Thanks everybody.
