Welcome to the Salon

Big West Festival and Wynter Projects presents WELCOME TO THE SALON inviting three contemporary performance artists to explore the role of women in the site-specific location of three functioning hair salons in Footscray. The salons are Medra Genet Boutique, Ngoc Lan Hairdressing and Beauty Salon and Sexy Hair Salon. Three artists Riza Manalo, Janette Hoe and Hannah Bronte explore the theme of identity through a hair salon; the hair styles, the process of cutting, the conversations between women, the material of hair and the milieu of a salon. The two guided walks will guide the audience to each hair salon to view each 15 minute performance.
