We are not the first – nor will we be the last – to walk on this land.
When walking on stones and cement it can be hard to remember what it feels like to have earth beneath our feet. What does it mean to be where we are?
By opening up the acknowledgement of country and taking a closer look within it, we search for a way to address the possible lack of connection contemporary Australians have with the spirituality of the land.
Follow the journey of three contemporary Australian circus artists with distinct relationships with country; an Indigenous Australian, a descendant of migrants, and a descendant of colonial settlers.
Of the Land on Which We Meet hopes to rediscover a connection we once had on-country with 60,000 years of history, spirit and story.
