Grasslands - a social & ecological dig through time.pdf-1

GRASSLANDS, a new outdoor site-specific performance, is about one small corner of what was once a vast ecosystem – the grasslands of the Victorian Volcanic Plains.

Centered around interactions with one site in Clunes, GRASSLANDS digs into the history of one place which has been grasslands, a school, knitting mills and a Bottle Museum.

The show incorporates oral history, projections, dance and live music, to explore moments of reflection about our human interactions with the landscape, our domestic realm, school, work and travel lines, ancient and contemporary.

Underpinning the work is the fragility and tenacious resilience of the Grasslands and the people who inhabit one small corner of them.

Bring a picnic dinner or food and refreshments will be available at reasonable prices.
