Collective exhilaration is the goal: an exuberant, immersive dance performance scored by Hiatus Kaiyote and featuring vibrant, kaleidoscopic fabric artwork from visual artist Hiromi Tango (and the community of Gurambilbarra [Townsville], who finger-knitted lots of it).
A tactile tour will take place before the Saturday evening performance, allowing people who may experience the world differently (such as those who have a sensory sensitivity) to fully immerse themselves in the sets, costumes and props before the performance starts.
The tactile tour is free of charge, but registration is essential.
