Wednesday 8 March, 5:30pm – 7:30pm
Featuring a special short performance by dancer Hsin-Ju Ely between 6pm-7pm.
The woman remembers the day the earth shook and the sea came rushing inland…
Presented as part of International Women’s Week, The Woman Remembers is a sophisticated and visually stunning digital work about belonging and loss, addressing our relationship to landscape and our experience of climate emergency.
The work traverses text and physical language across multiple art forms to produce an original, contemporary transcultural cinematic experience for audiences.
As a micro-cinema experience in Metro Art’s Gallery One, The Woman Remembers provides audiences with an intimate experience of this poetic transcultural work about a woman searching for her lost home after a climate-induced disaster.
The Woman Remembers is part of International Women’s Week 2023.
