The Moving Place hosts multi-disciplinary experimental collaborative enquiry; bringing together artists, communities and the places they live to create immersive, multi-artform outdoor performance events. Artistic Director Meredith Elton understands performance as an ecological act with potential to activate and celebrate our radical entanglement with each other and the earth. Everybody can experience the continuum between their body and the body of the world and feel connected to and valuing of their own creativity and the artistic and cultural life of their community.
Recent work includes Lines in the Sand: (re)making contact for Festival 2018. A collaboration with Maori Australian Choreographer Victoria Hunt, Aboriginal installation artist Carol McGregor and ten community participants, the project explored what it means to at home on Yugambeh Country as a non-Aboriginal person. Previous project Inherit the Wind – presented on the Coolangatta foreshore at Bleach Festival 2017 just as cyclone Debbie impacted the coast – bought together 60 participants with a team of 7 artist collaborators to explore the wonders and worries of weather and our changing climate.
