A joint venture between PACT Centre for Emerging Artists and Moogahlin Performing Arts, iDNA is an examination of identity and personal history; and is currently showing at PACT’s Erskineville location.
Collective is the flagship ensemble program of PACT and has in the past supported groundbreaking artists such as Zoe Coombs Mar, Lara Thoms, Grant Moxon, and Nick Atkins.
Current partner Moogahlin Performing Arts is New South Wales’ leading First Peoples’ performing arts company, and is committed to encouraging cross-cultural dialogues between artists of different backgrounds.
For this year’s self-devised production, iDNA, a group of early career artists, with skills ranging from dance to writing to aerial performance, will take on questions of identity, family history, and genetics.
Exploring our communal family tree, these eleven emerging artists tackle the idea of who we really are, and with international affairs at the forefront of many of our minds, now is definitely the time to do so.
Co-directed by Fred Copperwaite and Katrina Douglas, iDNA features work from Bonnie Cowan, Emily Dash, Alison Eaton, Alex Ford, Cheryn Frost, Jorjia Gillis, Cath McNamara, Keila Terencio, Anna Thomsen, Sam Wang and Natalie Wilson.
iDNA will be at PACT, Erskineville until November 26th. For more information, please see the website.
