Tell Me More

Part Three | Australian Dance Theatre The Third Exploring the relationship between the Western archive and a First Nations archive, each built on differing ideologies. The Third extends these concepts by looking at the body as an archive and how we hold memories personally and collectively.

Part Three | Chunky Move AB_TA_Response Commisioned by The Australian Ballet, AB_TA_Response reimagines components of Antony Hamilton’s 2019 major work Token Armies. In Token Armies, a movement language is constructed from the dialogue between humans and material objects. Central to the choreographic research is a fascination with how tools and machines inform human movement. This involves looking at realities and fictions that consider past, present and future demands for cooperation between biological and technological systems.

Part Three | The Australian Ballet (Lucas Jervies Imposter) and (Alice Topp First Light) The Australian Ballet will showcase new works from Lucas Jervies (Imposter) and resident choreographer Alice Topp (First Light).

Part Three | Marrugeku Gudirr Gudirr Gudirr Gudirr calls a warning, the guwayi bird calls when the tide is turning — to miss the call is to drown. An intimate solo dance and video work performed by Dalisa Pigram, daughter of Broome. By turns hesitant, restless, resilient and angry, Gudirr Gudirr lights a path from a broken past through a fragile present and on to a future still in the making.
