A shared history deeply soaked in place, land and memory

The Line is a story of segregation, confinement, abandonment and cross-racial relationships loosely-set in the 1930s in Perth.  This powerful dance-theatre work draws on the rich history that resulted from the enforcement of the prohibited areas after 6pm for Aboriginal people not in employment in the City of Perth and other areas of Western Australian between 1927 and 1954. 

The Line shifts and shudders with the strength of contemporary voice, consciously echoing with the energy and movement of an unjust and painful past.  A living history, a line that connects to an experience of the local community that is deeply soaked into place, land and memory.

World premiere 15 May, 2019.
