Working with Performance Space has exposed me up to some incredible artists and groups. One such was award-winning Brown Council who performed in the Halls For Hire Season (28 August-1 September). Their work was titled Mass Action: 137 cakes in 90 hours and was a performative bake-off and test of endurance between the four members of Brown Council, as they attempted to cook every recipe in the iconic CWA cookbook Jam Drops and Marble Cakes. Their motivation and message was to push the domestic task of baking into a grotesque spectacle of extreme proportions. Paying tribute to CWA’s 90-year history dedicated to the empowerment of women, this monumental feat explored culturally embedded notions of ‘women’s work’ and the importance of intergenerational dialogue. The girls were a joy to work with, agreeing to interviews and photo-shoots right the way through the 90 hours. And the result - four girls covered in flour, sugar and who knows what else, a room filled with cakes, scones, biscuits and breads and media coverage across ABC TV, SMH, The Daily Tele, ABC Radio 702 & Statewide, The Land, Alternative Media, Two Thousand, The Brag… the list goes on.
