Back from touring Europe, the Transmute Collective presents a unique  
interactive event across two sites - Intimate Transactions: Enter the  
work in at Sydney's Performance Space, Redfern or Artspace,

and hard signals in video, touch and sound. Explore and drift through  
a sensory, private experience.

Finally, you can choose to meet another player.  Each session lasts  
up to 30 minutes per person.
