Griffith Drama presents
The Salvation Project
Thu 30 Aug - Sat 8 Sep 2012
…I ask myself if that place…there in my country…ever really was a place meant for white people…
A post dramatic musical…
Always behind us…is the distance…pushing down…burying us in the dust of the past… We are reflected in the heat haze on that distant horizon… Our perspective of self in the landscape is clouded by our inheritance of it…by the blood that’s stains the dirt. Our pale reflections are hazy...indistinct...but we are reflected there on that horizon of un-belonging all the same. It is a grudging reflection…
The Salvation Project explores the ‘white’ relationship to - and future inheritance of - the Australian landscape. Offering conflicting images of beauty and brutality through physical performance, The Salvation Project is a visually striking production that re-imagines what it means to create a contemporary Australian musical.
