Re-vault

Taking the turtle for a walk

In 19th Century Paris you were the height of bourgeois cool if seen promenading with your pet turtle on a leash.

Life then was already being experienced as too fast paced – the turtle slowed its owner to a glacial speed.

It’s 2016 in Melbourne – you are invited to join me on a slow, silent drift through Melbourne allowing her history, sounds and scents to seep in.

This Colonial Garden

A performance involving sounds, an underwater experience, a land sale and strange walks.

Claimed by the Crown, this land was systematically reshaped by the English

for European leisure activities, that suited their sensibilities.

How do we experience this place now?

Through sensitising tasks, witnessing and performance – audience and performers alike will go a “digging’ and a “planting” in this colonial garden.

Requiem Walk

In this work we take the time to remember: in the creation of all of this (the built environment of the city and its contemporary urban cultures), who and what was sacrificed? Melbourne’s history plaques represent a smooth transition from Indigenous inhabitation of this place to a city constructed by white ‘settlers’, but we know this was not the case. As ‘white’ Melburnians, we acknowledge that we drag many bones behind us.
