This is a litte song we wrote and performed in response the the plebiscite in Australia regarding Same Sex Marriage. It's not ok to vote NO. Religion and Family are not excuses to be homophobic and to preach hate. Love is Love

The eight artists involved in this chapter of Discordianism are embracing the ideas born out of the book Principia Discordia and taking what was originally a parody religion and seeing if it is possible to make it real for themselves and others, using their performance practice as a vehicle for recruiting and formalising this anti
establishment belief system within and funded by the establishment.
Discordia is not a cynical satire; it’s a live and fluid construction of a pact that is constantly changing, decentralised and gleefully disorganised.
Trying to create order amidst the complexity of everyday life is a fool’s game. We are not in control and the belief that we are creates fear of losing control, which drives anxiety, oppression, hatred and narcissism.
Our lives are constantly on the edge of sudden and radical change. With this in mind, we are seeking individuals and self-organising communities to work with us in the search for finding meaning and freedom in holy chaos.

Garrett and Will Huxley undertook a pop up art installation by running a bar for a month in Melbourne's popular Carlton Club Hotel. Making over an empty white room from scratch to feature colourful art wotks and an immersive disco decadent experience. The Bar was a high concept experience featuring art works pasted on lurid walls. Performance art every week. Costumes and constant extravaganza. It was a mini stuido 54 on an art trip. 2015
