MALLACOOTA FIRES – An Act of Solidarity
Solo Human Powered Bicycle Viola Tour 2020

It would be difficult for anyone in the world not to be impacted emotionally by the fires ravaging Australia in this very moment.

As a resident of Mallacoota, I have witnessed the destructive force of this fire and the devastation it leaves in it’s path.

In an act of solidarity with other fire impacted communities and the natural environment, I’ve decided to do a slow bicycle tour from Mallacoota to Sydney performing free / fundraising concerts with music and moving images along the way.

Whilst traveling I hope to meet local artists, musicians, film makers and composers who might be interested in collaborating in the various live looping / live cinema performances.

So, if you’re between Mallacoota and Sydney and interested in this idea please get in touch via my website or facebook page.

Tour starts mid March, fires permitting.

Many Thanks,
Kristin Rule
