Serpent Dreaming Women aims to create awareness through affecting emotion and effecting change. This site-specific piece draws links between Indian, Indian diasporic, and Australian Indigenous women, as they explore their complex and long relationships with each other’s cultures and Mother Earth- simultaneously political, poetic, contemporary and timeless. Join these women as they attempt to undo the warp and weft of the binds that constrain their minds and bodies through an embodied process of decolonisation.
