The States is the third multi-media collaboration of Brisbane composer Erik Griswold, Darwin artist Sarah Pirrie, and American-New Zealand writer Craig Foltz. Building on their previous works Other Planes (2000) and Permanent Transit (2002), 'The States' explores themes of globalization, dislocation, and identity from an expatriate point of view.
Utilising gospel music, spoken word, video installation, magnetic sculptures, chanted intonations, Chinese violin and homemade electronics these performers create an interactive environment which puts the audience in the middle of the action. Using selected moments from the fabric of contemporary culture The States filters these moments through an interdisciplinary performance full of impromptu surprises.
