We apologise for the inconvenience and thank you in advance for your understanding.
Presented by Black Swan State Theatre Company in collaboration with Marregeku
“His most recent work from Marrugeku cements its place as one of Australia’s most exciting dance companies” - Alison Croggon (Witness)
This award-winning production from one Australia’s leading dance companies at the forefront of intercultural work will move, exhilarate and challenge audiences.
Inspired by the ongoing series of New Caledonia’s referendums on independence from France, and Australia’s decades of debate over Indigenous recognition and treaty, Le Dernier Appel explores the aftermaths of colonisation, seeking what to embrace of the new and what to let fall. While governments debate, peoples born of invasion, migration and displacement, wait for the new day.
Mes chers amis,
Some things cannot be said with words. It's are written on our bodies. Etched into our skin, spoken with our movements, our voices. There are invisible restraints holding us in place. There’s a space beyond this moment, we know there is. A space beyond this instability, beyond this frustration.
We must reconfigure power and embrace a transmission of old and new knowledge.
