Bare bones . Hot blood . Beating heart . Passing time.
We’re Searching for Vital Signs
Over 3 days in January 2016 Backbone’s 2high Festival will inject Brisbane’s home of independence – Metro Arts – full of music, performance, art and arguments. Play music that bids hearts to beat. Manifest theatre that exposes the bone. Instigate arguments that makes the blood run hot and erode the wall between art and science.
This year’s festival team have been inspired by the political climate surrounding arts funding, and the surge of national conversations that have lead to the uncovering of truth and questioning what we have been told to believe. We have investigated our importance as artists and scientists. We have grown to understand and appreciate the value of our voice and sharing our ideas – loudly and with pride: as much as we listen to and amplify the voices that remain silenced. We believe it is integral that we keep our finger on the pulse of our diverse community, our present, our art.

Backbone has matched funding from Arts Queensland – so every dollar donated is matched!
