We are here to witness our failing paradise. Suspended in time, vulnerable bodies navigate a forest of cement, imprinting brick to body. In this manufactured oasis, we observe the fragility of the human body beating alongside our persistence to conquer, outlive and survive in the face of crisis. Landscapes shift, micro cityscapes rise and crumble, as audience and performers move through avalanches of decay, gritty transformations that reveal spaces for hope and action. Care and burden. Weight and weightlessness. How do we care for what we have inherited? With vivid choreography, Fertile Ground manipulates space, sound and a brutalist pile of concrete bricks in this ground-breaking participatory performance. This event is part of SPRING.LOADED.DANCE, an initiative by GUTS Dance Central Australia. Fertile Ground 67 Bath Street Alice Springs Friday 24th September – 6pm Saturday 25th September – 6pm
