Two ancient cultures meet and collaborate through dance: Sampang Agung Centre for Performaing Arts (SACPA) from Pelem, East Java and Wotjobaluk dancers from the Wimmera, regional Victoria.
From this remote and ancient land steeped in both aboriginal and colonial artefacts we enhance the visibility of our first nation footprint with a remote regional initiative.
This is an exhibition of photographs, film and a performance based in a remote regional town, Rainbow. The project was developed through the Small Town Transformations Grant. Small Town Transformations is a Victorian Government initiative delivered by Regional Arts Victoria.
Opening night performers from Wotjobaluk dancers: Ben Muir, Lochie Marks, Sonny Secombe and John Secombe.
