SILENCE by Karul Projects
Fri 26 May at 7:30 pm
Presented by: BlakDance
SILENCE is about the space in between. The conversations not being heard and the responses that are muted. Through the beating of a drum, bodies thrash through frequencies to uncover what lies in the SILENCE.
There’s SILENCE between the stars as the Emu travels across the night sky. There’s SILENCE in the dancer’s energy when they hit the cut, the rupture between rhythms and movement where the spirit world can enter. It’s also the deafening SILENCE under white noise. The same questions echoed through generations.
We have marched across Country. We have had promises made and promises broken. In SILENCE we pull the unresolved conversations from under the rug and slam them back on the table. Because the conversation about a TREATY will never be silenced.
Performers include Thomas E.S. Kelly, Taree Sansbury, Jhindu-Pedro Lawrie, Benjin Maza, Kiara Malcolm, Tiana Pinnell, Amber Nofal
