Talking on SBS中文普通话

Circus, Behind the Scenes

Last week Tons of Sense member Latonya (唐雅)had the pleasure of talking to YuXia on SBS Mandarin about her life and circus

下个星期团体人 唐雅 (Latonya)说话跟 Yu Xia 在 SBS中文普通话电台。

“唐雅出生在布里斯班,小时候因为好动、淘气,父母就替她物色一些兴趣爱好。体操、游泳、田径……尝试了一圈,小唐雅却选择了杂技。唐雅认为,杂技是一门极具创新的艺术,而不是一项体育运动。”

You can listen to the interview below or on the SBS website.

Tons of Sense – Take Back the Night

Circus, Video, Visual Art

Dressing up and heading for a night on the town should never make anyone feel uncomfortable or afraid.

It doesn’t matter what clothes you wear, or where you walk, if you are drunk or if you’re alone — There is never an excuse for sexual violence.

The Art of Asking

Circus

Over the last week we were happy to announce we had recieved our first ever funding. It is an exciting time for Tons of Sense, but as with many other artists it can sometimes feel hard to accept financial help. There is always doubt as to whether your practice is worth it, if you should stop wasting money and get a ‘real job’. I think joined has articulated this feeling better than Amanda Palmer. Her words on the subject always inspire us to keep trying, to keep making new works and to remember our value as artists.
