Amrita Hepi, Honey Long and Prue Stent
This _ _ _ _ _ _ _ may not protect you but at times it’s enough to know it’s there.
Gentle. Protective. Expansive. Immerse yourself in this giant inflatable dome as it shifts and breathes with the dancers within. Hepi, Stent and Long have created a soft structure to oppose ridgid ones; a place where in-betweeness can be nurtured and flourish. This hybrid installation, dance and photographic work investigates the contradictions in our ideas of utopia, and what new social possibilities might stem from these contradictions.
Amrita is a dancer/ dance maker, writer and activist; a Bundjulung and Ngapuhi woman interested in movement as manifested by all bodies and reimagining/creating the greatness that will be WOC first nations futures. Her work and practice sits in the nexus between pop culture and contemporary dance with a focus on intersectionality.
