The Unsettling The Trailer – in progress
The Unsettling proposes a cross-cultural, cross-disciplinary collaboration employing the genre of Horrorcore HipHop to develop a choreographic work structured as a Supernatural Horror Film; revealing the invisible violence of the colonial present. To Question; Can a Torres Strait Islander artist and a white Australian artist work outside processes of Appropriation and Assimilation to Co-Author a contemporary artwork? Ghenoa and Atlanta will develop two separate performances presented Simultaneously. Both sharing musical accompaniment and meeting on screen, as a Supernatural Horror Film made in real time; proposing a Fiction set in Reality; an analysis of how fictions function philosophically and politically as an invention and/or as a temporal or spatial augmentation of the present.
Technically this a proposal for a new platform for inter disciplinary performance and collaboration, with two simultaneous dance performances shown through camera, edited live and mixed to allow the creation of live cinema. An exploration into culture and colonialism, creating a new approach to cross cultural collaboration, dealing with the dark history of colonialism and it’s continued legacy.
