Take this opportunity to meet with Unbound Collective, have a cup of tea and learn more about their practice, processes and performance outcomes. This In-conversation will be hosted my Powerhouse Museum’s Head of Indigenous Engagement and Strategy, Marcus Hughes.
The Unbound Collective brings together years of research in a performance practice that moves through spaces that have historically seen Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Australians excluded and reduced to tell untold chapters of Australia’s true history.
Members of the collective include Ali Gumillya Baker, Simone Ulalka Tur, Faye Rosas Blanch and Natalie Harkin.
- Ali Gumillya Baker shifts the colonial gaze through film, performance, projection and grandmother-stories.
- Simone Ulalka Tur’s performance and poetics enact an intergenerational transmission of story-work through education.
- Faye Rosas Blanch engages rap theory to embody sovereignty and shedding of the colonial skin.
- Natalie Harkin’s archival-poetics is informed by blood-memory, haunting and grandmother-stories.
