This year’s LINES in the SAND Festival theme is nature first. The art and environment conversation is all about how we might place nature first in creative practices. What are the precedents? There are some obvious and not so obvious answers, and – as with all good questions raised in good discussions – new questions will emerge. We invite everyone, whether you are an artist or not, to join us on the Big Mat under the Big Marquee for an informal, dynamic conversation about art and nature. If you would like, visit our conversation blog site beforehand and leave your ideas, short or long:

ENRAPT PERFORMANCE/INSTALLATION

Sunday 7pm

Mooloomba Reserve, Point Lookout (next to Look Cafe)

The stage is a grassy clearing, the moon lights the night. Sounds and silence. Movement and stillness. In a prepared improvisation Nicholas Ng, Julian Wong and Jan Baker-Finch weave music and movement together responding to each other, to the moment, to the place.

‘Three disciplines fuse into a single experience… magic and intimate world emerges. Luminous images of transformed plant life wrap around the live screen of a dancer who moves to a haunting composition of erhu (2-string bowed fiddle) and to the Island’s environment. Movement artist Jan Baker-Finch, musician Nicholas Ng and artist Renata Buziak present Enrapt. ‘

Stradbroke Dreamtime is a newly-created production from QPAC and Queensland Theatre Company based on the writings of Oodgeroo Noonuccal – Aunty Kath Walker – who grew up on North Stradbroke Island.

Oodgeroo is celebrated nationally as a writer, poet and artist. On her island home, she is remembered also as a champion of Aboriginal cultural values and strident advocate for the protection of Stradbroke’s environment.
