SISTA GIRL

YIRRA YAAKIN THEATRE COMPANY


Sista Girl Hero Image

Two young women (a first nations woman and an Italian-Australian woman) meet face-to-face for the first time across the bed of a dying man. Strangers to each other but bonded by blood and grief. Sisters. They break the cold silence of the hospital room to start a difficult conversation. About the past and secrets. About the women who were their mothers. And about why this man, their father, abandoned one family to make another. When the past is dying and can’t say sorry, how do you move on?

Yirra Yaakin Theatre Company's Sista Girl is an exploration of the relationship between Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal migrant Australians, via the story of two women who share a white father. Co-written by Elena Carapetis (Gorgon) and Alexis West (Echoes …. of Knowing Home) the play will speak directly to audiences about questions of identity, grief and the complex nature of family.

ISLAND | I WAS HERE

FREMANTLE ARTS CENTRE

Image: Ian Strange, 'SOS', 2015-2017, archival digital print.

Perth-raised, New York-based artist Ian Strange continues his exploration of architecture and the home in his latest exhibition ISLAND.
 
The exhibition features large scale photographs of three interventions on foreclosed suburban homes in Ohio’s Rust Belt region, a site-specific installation based on a vacant house framework, and a section of a now-demolished New Jersey home.
 
ISLAND highlights how fragile and unstable the family home can be in the wake of the GFC and the ensuing American housing crisis. The work examines the family home as a symbol of family, community and safety as well as a place of entrapment.

For more, check out Art Bites: Home: The Art of Ian Strange (available on ABC iview), exploring the influence of Ian Strange's Perth upbringing on his artistic practice.

In I WAS HERE seven artists turn conventional history on its head. The world is flipped upside down, long held beliefs are disproved and fact replaces fiction as the artists grapple with what’s real, imagined or forgotten over time. Comprising photographic and sculptural works I WAS HERE is a fascinating commentary on history itself and our relationship to the past.

ISLAND and I WAS HERE

On now until Saturday 16 September 2017
