Saturday 28 April, 2018 - The Embodied Landscape

We will collaborate with  Barengi Gadjin Land Council, Wotjobaluk dancers and visiting Indonesian artists staying at the Rainbow Artist in Residence Program, to create movement performances/interactions in places across our beloved landscape. Developing a new and exciting relationship and creative work, where both groups investigate spiritual connections to land and culture. We will explore various sites, including heritage listed Lake Albacutya. We will hold Movement and wellbeing workshops with Sampang Agung Centre for Performing Arts (Pelem, Pacitan, Indonesia) to provide Javanese dance, music and movement for local students and adults. Through this activity local community members will be encouraged to gain an understanding of the potential for self-exploration and wellbeing through Indigenous, traditional and contemporary movement.
