Firstdraft End of Year Party: “Party” “Girl”
6 – 10pm
Friday 1 December
Firstdraft’s end of year party “Party” “Girl” is curated by Ainslie Templeton.
She reaches the top of the stairs and her ‘lane’ turns off in December 1 at Firstdraft at 6pm. It’s a party. There’s an interesting eye drawn above her on the wall, with a mop. Someone dancing in a bag… does anyone at this party look at each other? breezing through the crowd, eyes scanning across it. She’s 34, groundhogged. Pretending to be drunk. Thinking about her HECS debt. hi :) By her left eye, a satin or other shimmering garment caught the lights in brilliant delight. She breathed in and out to the beat of the song. Closing her eyes and reflecting on a few things that came to mind then and there. Roman colosseum-air-Arena. Paper shapes. Petal shapes. F#A#∞. It’s a party.
“party” “girl” is a event in two parts: textual and irl. They are mutually constitutive, but also separate. Experience of each event will heighten the experience of the other, which is why we recommend reading the textual event both before and after attending the party.
