YONDER comes at a time of wrenching global debate around the #timesup movements, trans rights, climate change & Trump post-truth, asking us to contemplate our relationship with each other & the environment.
Emma Fishwick

YONDER is a new dance work in development that layers movement, live sound & live sculpture to explore the contradictions that arise from the conflation of gender & environment.

Featuring seven leading WA-based dance & contemporary artists at State Theatre Centre of West Australia, YONDER utilises multiple live layers and the unique Australian landscape as an access point to note and shift ideas of gender & ecology, how they sit within our urgent global conversations. With a highly-experienced inter-generational female cast (Sue Peacock, Shona Erskine, Isabella Stone & Storm Helmore), live industrial sound (Brett Smith), and a growing floral sculpture (Alina Tang, Bruce McKiven) that slowly takes over the stage, YONDER looks to past norms and current conversations to consider our future landscapes.
