In a 21st Century world where it is common to believe in both star signs and psychology, in Chinese medicine and pharmaceuticals, and in religion and science – how can we navigate the complex dialogues that consume contemporary culture? For thousands of years in Australia, understanding of the world came from dreamtime stories, song lines, and oral histories all of which are still relevant to many Australians. Our environment is riddled with the hypocrisies of a culturally diverse past lingering in the wake of a globalized present.
Common Dissonance seeks balance, community, exchange, unity and diversity. Featuring two contemporary performers with shared and distinctly individual experiences, this work aims not only to explore the harmony and dissonance of contemporary Australian reasoning, but to find a Common Dissonance.
Presented as part of Sidesault at The Melba.
