A public meeting at the Town Hall. Perhaps it’s The Last Night Of The World As We Know It. The Arnott’s biscuits are laid out, the urn is bubbling. A speaker steps up to the lectern and the conversation begins.
Honed with the knife-sharp wit of post’s Mish Grigor, Man O Man straddles performance, artist talk, installation and public meeting. It begins with the question: What would we say, formally, on the last night of the patriarchy?
Speeches have been written, there are big decisions to make – and the lamingtons are going like hot cakes.

Collaborators Bron Batten, Halcyon Macleod, Hallie Shellam, Diana Smith and Willoh S Weiland
