Two ancient cultures meet and collaborate through dance: Sampang Agung Centre for Performaing Arts (SACPA) from Pelem, East Java and Wotjobaluk dancers from the Wimmera, regional Victoria.
Jeremy Kruckel and Lee Ramseyer Bache’s installation The Embodied Landscape, is a multi -faceted fusion of culture, colours and textiles documenting a significant cultural meeting between Pelem and Wotjobaluk dancers.
Featured in The Embodied Landscape are a series of photographs and film, which document the performance based in Rainbow, a regional town in central Victoria.
“The exchange between the dancers on the sand dunes of Lake Albacutya was a welcoming of cultures. It started with a sharing of knowledge and history, taking turns preforming to the audience, but soon the two groups became so intertwined that everyone became a performer with only Albacutya to witness“.
The Embodied Landscape will feature in our Fitzmaurice Street office over the course of May. The installation’s unique arrangement includes a number of visual projections and an audio track. We highly recommend viewing the work after dark to see the full extent of the detail.
