Gabriella Mangano and Silvana Mangano studied drawing before they began making video works together. Using improvised choreography and working with their own bodies and simple materials, they emphasise gesture, process and sculptural form. There is no there 2015 was inspired by the Blue Blouse theatre collective (1924–32), which created a type of performance called Living Newspapers based on topical news events. Expanding their concept of performance, the Manganos have designed an installation space featuring a video projection and geometric platforms upon which dancers will perform carefully choreographed gestures and movements referring to current news events. Extending the notion of community engagement, they are collaborating with local QUT dance students to activate the space during the exhibition.
