Work Overview

"Kali's Laugh came as the result of seeing a place I had loved being consumed by bushfire. The pain of that loss seared me. I created four interconnected movements from Indian and Australian stories about the healing power of fire. Our western view is to fear fire, but Kali, the goddess of love and destruction, knows it can bring new life. I have since abridged this into a revised version (2018) with three movements (before, during and after)".
