Terrain Image Gallery: Spinifex

  • Kati Thanda-Lake Eyre
  • Choreography, Costumes, Sets & Lighting, Performance

Premiering in 2012, Terrain transports us to Kati Thanda-Lake Eyre in South Australia, the place of Australia’s inland sea: one of the few untouched natural waterways in the world. Choreographer Frances Rings explores the fundamental connection between Aboriginal people and land - how our land looks after us, how we connect with its spirit, and how we regard its future.

The section Spinifex is inspired by the trees in and around Lake Eyre that resemble the gatherings of spirit women waiting, suspended in time. This gallery includes a selection of images captured by photographer Greg Barrett from the Community Night performance, Sydney, 2012.
