2012 Artistic Program Highlights announced
By Craig Walsh (QLD / National)
A plaintive and stirring projected paean of what ‘home’ means to us is the result of Craig’s epic and ground breaking digital odyssey, constructed and developed between the years of 2009 and 2011.
From MacKay to Murray Bridge via Alice Springs video footage of locals discussing their views of home are projected large onto found spaces and places.
Kumuwuki / Big Wave is pleased to premiere this work especially edited for locations in and around Goolwa.
Home is co-presented with the assistance of the Museum of Contemporary Art and Craig Walsh’s Digital Odyssey.

If There Was a Colour Darker than Black I’d Wear It
By Rising Damp and Illuminart, produced by Country Arts SA (SA)
Steeped in ambiguity and fluidity of time “Black” delivers you information from the past, present and future.
Operatic in scale and emotion this new immersive, semi-site specific, performance installation work is imaginatively visceral and wholly affective.
Ado is a celebrated young man with talent and choice who, according to his family and friends, is at the pinnacle of his potential. So what’s happened and where has he gone?
So charge your mobile, friend Ado on facebook and travel on a bus to visit places where he lives and plays, interacting with him along the way. Will you get to meet and intercept him or will he continually stay jus out of reach?
The real world of a country town is dubbed, daubed and overlaid with the symbols, images and memes that gives the audience clues to Ado, his life, associations and inner most thoughts.
Proudly supported by Country Arts SA through its performance development program and made possible through the financial assistance of the Australia Council Theatre Board and Arts SA’s Major Festival Commission Funding Program.

Southern Encounter is a series of site specific performances, installations and collaborations between artists, visiting audiences and the local communities on a chartered train moving through the landscape of South Australia’s oldest rail route.
The result of 6 month long artist residences and community workshops, culminating in a unique 4 hour experience presented on a return train journey from Victor Harbour to Strathalbyn.
Utilising old and new media as well as the interdisciplinary arts of sound practices, Southern Encounter celebrates community, heritage and landscape in the most inventive way.
“Southern Encounter” is proudly supported by Country Arts SA through its Performance Development program and made possible through the financial assistance of the Australia Council’s Music Board and Arts SA’s Independent Makers and Producers Fund.
