Fish continues the story of the earth and the power of the elements that began with Ochres, taking the journey to the vast bodies of water.
This production features the First Nations languages Yolngu Matha (Yirritja) (North East Arnhem Land), Kala Lagaw Ya (Central & Western Torres Strait Islands) and Yugambeh (South East Queensland).
Sections of Fish
Swamp - The swamps and the mangroves are still waters, deep, murky and mystical, a site of great sacredness and spirituality.
Traps - 'Traps' juxtaposes Western ways with the ancient, challenging the notion of hooking and gutting with the slow lure and catch of the old.
Reef - Inspired by the Torres Strait, the vibrant blues, the rich purples, the deep dramatic greens of 'Reef' evoke the clash and contrast of culture and colour found at the water's edge.
Duration: 70 minutes
Fish premiered in 1998.
