Event Details

An evergreen selection of song and brand-new Indigenous dance to match the patterns and movement of the many Australian seasons.

Following the movement of our planet around the sun, the weather changes and nature responds in colour and shape to the wind and the rain, the shadows and the sunshine. The traditional four seasons of Spring, Summer, Autumn, and Winter have been depicted in European art and music for centuries, but the Aboriginal experience of the seasons is a much more varied and subtler story that tells of the patterns of animal and plant life and their direct impact on survival. In this sympathetic synthesis of two artforms The Song Company is joined by a duo of dancers from Thomas E.S. Kelly’s Karul Projects to trace the course of the Earth’s annual journey in movement and song, both old and new.

Program and choreography including:
arrangements from Antonio Vivaldi’s The Four Seasons, and music ranging from Alice Chance's Pallah-Pallah, to Francis Poulenc's Un soir de neige

Featured non-Australian music: Vivaldi, Poulenc
