Foundation / Welcome Home Lightnin’ Stone: Creative Development

Produced by illuminart, Foundation / Welcome Home Lightnin’ Stone (alternative working titles) was a multimedia performance project developed to the point of work in progress showing. The creative process underpinning the project development explored themes of reconnecting with ancestry and history. These themes are significant around Australia, as settlement, dispersal and forced removal of children has had irrevocable impact on Australian Aboriginal people. The project involved Indigenous people as collaborators and consultants, to investigate pathways for representing these challenging issues in a contemporary format.
