A MaKom Collective production in association with NORPA
ERA was made slowly throughout the last year as four dance artists lived through 2020 along with everybody else, continuing to create and respond to the changes and the upheavals of a world in struggle.
The 2019 bushfires set the tone for the beginning of the piece in a layered image of black for the forests and also for the inheritance of ancestors from bygone eras. Affected and interrupted as the journey traverses emotional bonds, emerging and dissolving into fierce and often obtuse images of longing and desire.
MaKom Collective dig deep into their collective history and current beliefs to devise a work that shimmers in intensity discovering dystopian histories for women which no longer fit, and a longing for nature that is always present.
Performed and devised by Alona Rosenberg, Kimberley McIntyre, Meggie Danielson, and Noa Rotem
