As you enter the theatre for Skin, you are entering a timeless sacred space. Barely visible in low lighting, a woman and a boy start to unfold a story. The mother heart, the bonding spirit of the women in Shelter lay the foundation for the men of Spear to survive.
"My first inspiration was family kinship. I have seen how remote traditional families live. l have watched urban Aboriginal families !ive. I have watched my professional family - Bangarra - live. And my immediate family. I have been inspired by the traditional family kinship - about the way it respects the gender of men and women."
Stephen Page, 2000
Duration: 71 Minutes (plus interval)
