MMeets—Eugenia Lim & APHIDS present ‘Easy Riders Gig Night’

Classes, Lessons, Workshops and Talks

6 Dec 2019

In the gig economy, strangers enter into the intimate space of each other’s homes, cars, kitchens (and beyond) in an uneven relationship of digital-initiated supply and demand. In Ubers, drivers select different music types to set subtle (or obvious) social cues: to encourage talking, a party atmosphere, or silence. Join musician Sui Zhen and Easy Riders gig worker collaborators as they set the mood with an eclectic mix of music inspired by our digital age.

Combining dance, synchronised bike-riding and performance, Easy Riders is a collaborative choreography that explores the nature of work and human connection in the digital age. Developed with workers of the gig economy (independent artists and ‘independent contractors’ for companies such as Uber, Deliveroo and Airtasker), Easy Riders asks: how much of our daily lives should be lived by others? What are the moral and social implications of outsourcing? And who do we become once we’re fully outsourced and at our most ‘efficient’ – Übermenschen or über-assholes? Easy Riders is inspired by the pioneering work of artist Mierle Laderman Ukeles and her ‘work ballets’.

Booking required.

Easy Riders: The Prologue are supported by Australia Council for the Arts, City of Melbourne, Creative Victoria and APHIDS.
