Galup is a site-specific walking performance exploring the history and untold stories of Lake Monger in the early 1800s. Created by Ian Wilkes and Poppy van Oorde-Grainger with an oral history from Doolann Leisha Eatts. Galup invites audiences on a journey around the lake to hear, watch and participate in historic re-enactments.
Originally commissioned by International Art Space as a part of the Know Thy Neighbour #2 program, this project had a first short season in 2019 and we are currently seeking funding to remount the work and further expand the audience reach and increase public awareness of largely unknown events in local history.
To find out more about the project, register for our online presentation on Thursday 13 August, 3pm-4pm (AWST) here.
