SILENCE is a powerful contemporary dance  performance featuring seven performers on a minimalist set  with evocative lighting. The complex musical score, punctuated  by dynamic live percussion, explores past, present, alternate  realities and dreamscapes. The entire stage is slowly engulfed in dirt, representing the worldwide call for the return of Indigenous lands.  SILENCE breaks the silence.
SILENCE is about a treaty conversation, perhaps best put by its creators, Karul Projects:
SILENCE is about the space in between. The conversations not being heard and the responses that are muted. Through the beating of a drum, bodies thrash through frequencies to uncover what lies in the SILENCE.
There’s SILENCE between the stars as the Emu travels across the night sky. There’s SILENCE in the dancer’s energy when they hit the cut, the rupture between rhythms and movement enabling a vibrational glitch where the spirit world can enter. It’s also the deafening SILENCE under white noise. The same questions echoed through generations.
We have marched across Country. We have had promises made and promises broken. In SILENCE we pull the unresolved conversations from under the rug and slam them back on the table. Because the conversation about a TREATY will never be silenced,
