Le Dernier Appel (The Last Cry)

Date: 23 Jul 2018

Carriageworks and Marrugeku presents the World Premiere of Le Dernier Appel (The Last Cry), a rumination on how dance in the Asia Pacific region is transfigured by decolonisation, performed by dancers of First Nation, immigrant and settler descent from Australia and New Caledonia.

Inspired by the questions arising out of the New Caledonian referendum on independence, Le Dernier Appel explores old and new knowledge as power is reconfigured.

The work features design by New Caledonian artist Nicolas Mole and music by Ngaiire, Nick Wales and Bree van Reyk. After it is performed at Carriageworks the work will travel to New Caledonia’s Centre Cultural Tjibaou Noumea as part of its 20th anniversary celebrations.
