From Sydney’s Moogahlin Performing Arts comes the world premiere of a powerful performance-installation created in a historic western suburbs church investigating women’s perspectives on death and mourning in Indigenous communities.
Drawing together elements of memory, lore and custom, the sacred and the mythical, makers Lily Shearer, Liza-Mare Syron, Aroha Groves, Andrea James and Katie Leslie occupy the reputedly haunted St Bartholomew’s Church and Cemetery in Prospect – Darug country – to create an intimate, enlightening and moving experience.
Founded in 2007, the Redfern-based Moogahlin Performing Arts is New South Wales’ leading First Peoples performing arts company. Developing, producing and presenting new work and nurturing a new generation of First Peoples arts practitioners locally, regionally, and nationally, Moogahlin was formed in honour of the late Kevin Smith and in memory of all founding members of the National Black Theatre.
