Directed by Alex Andreotti, this performance will be one for the ages, the community and the birds. With two performers using their bodies to create beautiful paintings, how did the question of the chicken and the egg come about?

Nicholas Currie is an artist, performer, and writer. Currie's practice is autobiographical and introspective to his cultural identity as a mixed Indigenous and Anglo Saxon Australian man in contemporary society. Currie's works are large non figurative works based on gestural movements of the body used in dance, manual labour, and sport. Currie's figurative work in sculpture and painting is a mixture of masculine family imagery and still lives with the visual language in his paintings having elements of storytelling as well as invoking conversations surrounding self-identification.
Olivia Wood is a painter and writer. Using poetry as a prompt for visual interpretation, she has indulged in the creation of a ballet.
