ERTH & NAISDA - Clearing

Clearing - ERTH & NAISDAFrom Australia

"fantastic... these guys are awesome" Paul McDermott, Triple J.

From the edges of Melbourne's inner cityscape a procession of living, breathing native trees slowly emerges, transporting us back in time to a land where indigenous prehistoric fauna flourished. A clearing is formed. Within this sacred space a dance ritual is enacted, recalling the landscape in a thrilling and spiritual performance. From ERTH, one of the most sought after performance groups in Australia, in collaboration with the NAISDA (National Aboriginal Islander Skills Development Association) Dance College comes Clearing, a fantastical and magical melding of physical theatre, stiltwalkers, full body puppetry and dance.
