a Shopfront Contemporary Arts Centre production
In 2009, Shopfront partnered contemporary Japanese performance group Nibroll and Keio SFC University in the project Superperfect, exploring what it meant to be good enough, to be perfect, to measure up! Combining comic book illustration, music, web design, and dance to create a real-life and online exhibition/performance in Sydney and Yokohama.
Superperfect was the result of over two years of development, bringing together artists and young people from diverse backgrounds. Over two hundred young people contributed through extensive workshops, including young people who were disadvantaged (Bankstown Multicultural Youth Service), new migrants and refugees (Fairfield and Beverly Hills Intensive English Centres), Aboriginal (Kirinari Hostel), still at school (De La Salle College, Cronulla) or at risk (Engadine Youth Service, Woniora Road School). Their ideas, images and stories wound through the performance, and are featured in an interactive exhibition, and are curated online at a dedicated website www.shopfront.org.au/superperfect
