The Crossing Presentation at Loch Island, Murray River, Mildura, 16, 17, 18 March

THE PROJECT SUMMARY:
The Crossing is a performance event on Loch Island, Murray River, Mildura inspired by local stories about the island, the river and untold histories. This is a collaborative work which is a poetic and ritual performance about spirit expressed through dance and evocative cameos of new and untold stories gathered, translated and performed by the local Koorie dances and musicians and invited Victorian Butoh dancers. The work seeks to articulate shared histories in a marriage of both local and international performance art forms by re-presenting a history of the under represented past and present. It is a contemporary expression of the spirit of place that will symbolically weave and acknowledge overlapping histories.

The artistic objectives are to make a new performance artwork in creative collaboration with The NSW Tafe; Koorie Unit, The Victorian College of Koorie Education and the performance artist, Jill Orr. The work seeks to communicate to audiences and participants alike, through the earthed energy of dance and music in both Aboriginal and Butoh dance forms. Both forms focus on highly centred and emotionally charged energy, which is different and complementary enabling the creation of potentially powerful image making. The distinct dance forms will create the physical language used to articulate a culturally different historical and contemporary experience.

"...Tony Yap's ether (E1), we moved back into a more grounded, yet spiritual realm. On a lawn at the bottom of a small amphitheatre, surrounded by a "virtual temple" made of closely spaced lengths of rope (by Naomi Ota), Yap performed an intricate, very absorbing piece based on Malaysian trance dance. Two musicians, Madeleine Flynn and Tim Humphrey, and singer Ria Soemardjo, provided a haunting soundscape. ether (E1) was my favourite of all the installations, with its integration of site, music and dance."
