The Unbound Collective is participating in the Vitalstatistix Climate Century Festival at Port Adelaide this month, performing the third instalment in its trilogy of research and performances that explore how ideas can both contain and set free Aboriginal people.
The Flinders University group brings together four Indigenous women working across art, activism and academia – Ali Gumillya Baker (Mirning Nation), Simone Ulalka Tur (Yankunytjatjara), Faye Rosas Blanch (Mbararam/ Yidinyji) and Dr Natalie Harkin (Narungga Nation).
Sovereign Act III – Refuse, will be performed this Saturday November 24, 8pm at Hart’s Mill, in a sunset piece that explores resistance and refusal to environmental degradation on Aboriginal land, the role of Aboriginal women in caring for Country, inter-generational transmission of knowledge and sovereignty through protest.
The Unbound Collective is also looking forward to taking its production to Sydney in 2019, where it will perform as part of The National New Australian Art at the Art Gallery of NSW and the Museum of Contemporary Arts in late March.
A free event, the Port Adelaide Climate Century performance will be preceded by a panel discussion, with a ‘fire yarn’ to follow at 9:30pm.
