Tales of Lust & Madness is a new show from Lydia Lunch, New York’s ‘punk poet queen of extremities’ and Joseph Keckler, a singular performer once crowned the ‘best downtown performance artist’ in New York City.
Birth is magical. It is powerful and wild and beautiful and scary and miraculous. Until it’s not. When things go to shit, it happens fast and when your baby dies, your life is changed forever, but not in the way you were expecting.
Audiences from Lismore and beyond were treated to a very special event last week as NORPA presented Djurra, a work in drama and dance.
Packed houses were enthralled by the work inspired by a Bundjalung Nation creation story – Djurra presented a coexisting modern story within the piece, a sad but not uncommon set of issues for contemporary Aboriginal people.
The last show for Djurra was held on Saturday and everyone turned out to see what all the buzz was about.
In conjunction with ArtState, City Hall also hosted an enormous sand sculpture made by local Indigenous artists Digby Moran and Richard Clarke. Two days in the making, the work is based on a traditional Bundjalung diamond pattern.
