Episode 03 of APHIDS LISTENS is a conversation between Mish and Talya Rubin. Talya is a poet and performance maker living in Fremantle (WA). She is a co-founder of Too Close to the Sun, who make performance work that takes a hybrid form, weaving non-linear narratives that combine rich text, video, sound and objects to transcend expectations of theatrical storytelling and create resonant experiences for audiences.

APHIDS LISTENS is an alternative archive where artists share a work they’ve made, and a work they’ve loved.

APHIDS acknowledges the Wurundjeri Woi-wurrung and Boon wurrung peoples on whose lands we live and work. Sovereignty was never ceded and we pay our respect to past, present, and future Aboriginal elders and community, and to their long and rich history of artmaking on this Country.
