Performance | Shaieisha + Misteria Towler: Belonging
‘Contemplating their place on land that was once ours, but now seems so foreign.’
Through spoken word and movement, two sisters express their journey from feeling dispossessed in colonised spaces, to achieving a sense of belonging.
This live activation is presented as a part of Daniel Boyd: Rainbow Serpent (Version).
