Devised as a live performance and film-making event, a mutually responsive collage of movement, music, and arresting visuals tells their story of grit, tenacity, and perseverance through harsh social and environmental conditions. The film’s experimental design explores the tensions between liveness, mediatization, and the ability of technology to reveal novel performance experiences.
The Long Walk
Set on the isolated coast of Robe, South Australia, “The Long Walk” pays homage to the 16,000 Chinese miners who landed there in the 1850s and walked 500 kms across an alien landscape to the goldfields, in search of a better life.
