The Dark Side of Design

Discover the Darker Side of Design with MAX Grr! Making its debut at the Melbourne International Design Festival this July.

The Dark Side of Design


July 17th, 2008

MAX Grr!! is a temporary design installation and choreographed dance piece. Presented as part of the Melbourne International Design Festival, MAX Grr!! will be showing in Centreplace Laneway, Melbourne, Wednesday 23 – Thursday 24 July.

Presented by architect, Ben Edwards, choreographer, Kate Stanley, and dancer, Fiona Bryant, this collaborative event is a major feature of the Melbourne International Design Festival’s PopUps program.

The performance centres on Max, the lead character in Maurice Sendak’s children’s book ‘Where the Wild Things Are’.

Working in the shadowy depths of the dank, grime-ridden Centreplace Laneway, Ben Edwards, Kate Stanley and Fiona Bryant will design and construct an installation to create an eerie, transient, illusionary setting for this exciting performance.

A must see event in Melbourne this month.

Date: 8pm, Wednesday 23 and Thursday 24 July
Venue: Laneway installation, Centreplace Laneway (off Flinders Lane)
Cost: FREE, bookings essential.


Booking for the performances are essential and can be made by emailing max@theintervention.net or visiting www.theintervention.net/maxgrr
