Ochre Contemporary Dance Company


3 point 3

Australian Premiere Season / Subiaco Arts Centre 26 May - 3 June 2018

3.3 portrays a successful Indigenous dancer thrown into a holding cell because of his skin colour.

He communicates his anger, frustration and people’s history via 100 steps drawn from a variety of world dance practices and described by words from Noongar language.

Ian Wilkes dances the feature role, choreographed and originally created by Indigenous dance legend Michael Leslie. Directed and lit by Mark Howett, with live music from David Milroy.
