Inspired by two diverse Indigenous cultures, True Stories is a powerful double bill featuring Frances Rings' X300 and Elma Kris' debut choreographic work Emeret Lu.
In Emeret Lu (Very Old Things), Choreographer Elma Kris explores her peoples’ love of the land, the sea and their unique culture with an exuberance handed down from generation to generation.
In the 1950’s a series of atomic explosions were conducted on Maralinga - Tjarutja traditional lands. The code name of the test site was X300. Frances Rings’ work powerfully and spectacularly explores a landscape assumed vacant but which in reality became a contaminated desert which poisoned the people.
True Stories premiered in 2007 as a double bill including Emeret Lu and X300.
