歸屬 Gui Shu (Belong)

Sally Richardson

Created and directed by Sally Richardson, in association with leading independent dance theatre performers, musicians and artists from Taiwan and Australia, 歸屬 Gui Shu is a cross-cultural collaboration that explores shared histories, the process of translation and adaptation through a live interaction of movement, sound and vision. How the experience of space and place informs, connects and changes us.

An immersive performance experience, created in Taiwan and Australia that explores shifting realities, time, zones, languages and identities as we search for a deeper sense of connection while in a constant state of transformation, momentum and movement.

From the laneways, malls and teeming streets of Taipei to the rivers, bushscapes and surburbia of outer metro WA, this is a series of arresting portraits of people and place, reflecting how culture and space shapes us. What is strange, other and achingly familiar is re-framed and reconnected.
