Amrita Hepi, Jahra Wassasala

Dana Waranara Space Grant

Passing is a new dance theatre work choreographed by Amrita Hepi and Jahra Wassasala (NZ) that examines the indigenous experience of diaspora, that coming to country isn’t always a spiritual conniption and looking at privilege and how it dances.

Passing brings together some of Australia’s most talented emerging creatives including original score by Lavern Lee (Guerre, Cassius Select, Black Vanilla), and costumes from installation artist Honey Long.  Caught between competing and converging identities, this emotive performance opens a window to Hepi and Wassasala’s personal experience of how coming to culture doesn’t always happen ‘traditionally’, what privilege looks like, and how it dances.
