Event Details

This event has been dreamed up through a collaboration between members of the Queensland College of Art, Queensland Conservatorium of Music, Griffith Film School, and Environment Protection Agency. Just off the coast of Brisbane, the crumbling ruins of St. Helena Island's isolated prison still stand to remind us of the ghosts of Australia's past that continue to flit and weave their way into the present. This five part collaborative event is an invitation to audience members to be part of an experience that considers some aspects of the Island's rich history. Issues of Indigenous custodianship, isolated incarceration, race relations, fear of outsiders, the drive towards productivity and sustainability, and a prevailing capacity to dream and yearn and hope in the face of adversity are carried in the evidence of the stones and spaces of the past. Audience members are invited to play their own part in an iteration of another phase of the Island's rich history. No charge - the audience will become part of the recorded event. Walking shoes, mosquito repellent are suggested. Drinks available on the vessel Cat o' Nine Tails on the trip over and coming back.

Performers: Pat Hoffie (coordinator), Anthony & Donna Hamilton, Kim Cunio, Nicholas Ng, Tunji Beier, Heather Lee, Peter Moyes, Laura McCabe, Amy Crossingham, Danika Catchpole, William James, Xuening Tang, Roland Dowling, Lauren Penny, Andrew Weyer
