Mitch King is a Yaegl Bundjalung man with a story to tell. Joined on stage by long term collaborator and sound artist Blake Rhodes, Mitch tells his story inspired by community, Country and the first native title claim on a body of water in Yamba.
Told through contemporary dance, poetry, visual imagery and rap, Flow is a new dreaming, strengthening respect for Eldership and engaging young people in the living traditions held in local ancestral stories.
Flow is a yarn about Yaegl country and neighbouring nations, within NSW. It’s a tale of searching and finding identity in music, urban culture and nature, an ancient story acknowledging how and why water flows through this region and its cultural significance.
