About the Show
Experience a youth-driven, Blak arts intervention as dis rupt takes over Hamer Hall for a groundbreaking afternoon of live music, performance and visual arts.
For the first time, a young team of ten emerging First Nations creatives led by Kate ten Buuren (Taungurung) with the support of Kalyani Mumtaz (Trawlwoolway) and Cienan Muir (Yorta Yorta and Ngarrindjeri) present new work made specifically for Hamer Hall.
Be submerged in story, song, dance, immersive installation and performance from the point of view of young First Nations creatives. Responding to the stories of the land on which the hall rests, the Birrarung and its waterways, dis rupt promises a surprising glimpse into the future of Blak creative arts.
Artists featured in dis rupt are Arkie Barton, Moorina Bonini, Edwina Green, Maya Hodge, Rosie Kalina, Savanna Kruger, Iluka Sax-Williams, Maylene Slater-Burns, Pierra van Sparkes, Tre Turner, Jenna Warwick, Brent Watkins and more!
