FAC Season 2023: Silence

"SILENCE is bold and uncompromising" - Richard Bell

A powerful First Nations dance performance, featuring seven performers on a stage slowly surrounded with dirt, representing the call for Land Back. SILENCE pulls the unresolved conversations about a Treaty from under the rug and slams them back on the table.

Event Description

Choreographed by Thomas E.S. Kelly, SILENCE is a powerful First Nations dance performance, featuring seven performers on a stage slowly surrounded with dirt, representing the call for Land Back. Dynamic live percussion drives the dancers’ exploration of past, present, alternate realities and dreamscapes of the milky way and Murun, the emu in the sky.

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.

SILENCE pulls the unresolved conversations about a Treaty from under the rug and slams them back on the table.

Presented by: Frankston Arts Centre and Karul Projects

 

SILENCE is produced by BlakDance and the national tour has received financial assistance from the Australian Government through the Australia Council for the Arts, its arts funding and advisory body.
