Set in the grit of a Diary Rd warehouse, Australian Dance Party’s ‘Mine!’ is a contemporary dance work integrating live manipulated sound by collaborating music ensemble, Ample-Sample.
The work digs into the language of ‘mine’. It surveys human relationships to this term, and questions their impacts on sustainable futures. Using the mining industry as a conceptual frame, ‘Mine!’ reveals a culture of short-sightedness and self-gratification via object and possession. Behaviours we challenge through this work.
