Australian Dance Theatre returns to South Australia’s regional communities once again in 2022 with a World Premiere triptych of ideas, stories and legacies by the company’s Artistic Director Daniel Riley (Wiradjuri) and Adrianne Semmens (Barkindji).
Daniel’s The Third takes as its starting point mulunma – Inside Within his 2021 RISING: Melbourne commission which explores the relationship between the Western archive and a First Nations archive, each built on differing ideologies. The Third extends these concepts by looking at the body as an archive and how we hold memories personally and collectively.
Immerse dives into the lineage of our waterways and our ancestral connection to fresh and salt water, speaking to the duality that springs from Adrianne’s connection to freshwater as a Barkindji woman, but now calling Adelaide home – saltwater country.
In addition to the performances, Daniel and Adrianne will devise and deliver workshops for a wide range of age and community groups. More information to come.
