Read an excerpt from Holly Childs' text HAVE THE dusk deepen, performed as part of Auto Italia's Rogue Agents project at Firstdraft, Sydney.
Somewhere there is a Siren. The disembodied female voice is perhaps even more horrific than the female body. The dark in itself is not as frightening as the imagination it lures.

Liquid Skin – a new text piece by artist Roberta Vaz – takes us on a journey to self-annihilation through the prototyped self in Second Life and beyond.
Nature of the Hunt
Nature of the Hunt is a project by Auto Italia in collaboration with Harman Bains, considering what is at stake in our contemporary desire to re-imagine folkloric and historic modes of violence and resistance. Explored through a disembodied survey of twentieth-century exploitation and body horror cinema, this project asks how the biological danger associated with the nature of the female in these materials might be claimed and shaped. It enables us to explore on new terms these female subjects historically considered dangerous to society.
Victoria Sin on Ursula Le Guin
Artist Victoria Sin explores the power of Ursula Le Guin's "carrier bag" approach to storytelling.
Rush is a new body of work initiated by Christopher Kirubi in collaboration with Auto Italia. Launching with an evening of newly commissioned performance, the ongoing project takes shape through a collaboration developed with Adam Fa-Rah, Chloe Fiilani, Shenece Oretha and Rhoda Boateng, working together as artists and friends meeting regularly to discuss spaces of desire, of community, and of action.
