“What remains in the aftershocks of empire? […] Such effects reside in the corroded hollows of landscapes […]. The question is pointed: How do imperial formations persist in their material debris, in ruined landscapes and through the social ruination of people’s lives?” – Ann Stoler cited in Katerina Teaiwa, 2015.
A live performance by Latai Taumoepeau where she relocates a 500kg block of ice with a shovel and a steady walk from point A to point B. Back and forth, she works the open-cut mines of the past into the future of climate change; excavating the solid white rock into invisibility.
This work belongs to a genealogy of durational performance reflections from Taumoepeau’s ‘Stitching (up) the Sea’ suite.
Performed as part of AusDance Australian Dance Week.

NewActon. One word, one fine place to live, work and just be. We took the rulebook, looked up classic principles of excellence in architecture and urban design, ripped out the pages that prescribe same-same and characterless, and added a chapter entitled, “How to create a truly innovative cultural precinct that shifts the status quo, and be awarded multiple times for doing so.” And then we scribbled our name on the title page in crayon.
