Shigeyuki explains Talanoa: Walk the Talk IV

Posted in News with tags , , , , on August 10, 2009 by secretnaomi

Talanoa: Walk the Talk IV is a free public performance at Redfern Community Centre, Sydney, Australia on Saturday 15 August 2009, from 12pm. Featuring: Wuruniri Music and Dance; Ingleburn RSL Club & Campbelltown Community Pipes and Drums.

During my seven-week residency hosted by the Campbelltown Arts Centre, Sydney I am staging the Talanoa: Walk the Talk III & IV in August 2009, at selected venues throughout Sydney. ‘Talanoa’ is a Samoan term used to describe the process of dialogue between two parties coming together in finding mutual ground through the exchange of ideas.

About Talanoa:

Samoan-born multimedia and performance artist Shigeyuki Kihara works in partnership with four performance groups with distinctive cultures and styles to come together in an intercultural dialogue – a ‘talanoa’ by staging live collaborative public performances held in locations situated throughout Sydney, Australia.

The documentation of all the ‘Talanoa’ performances (I – IV) will be presented as moving image artworks featured in an upcoming group exhibition entitled ‘What do you think about when you dance?’ – exploring the intersection between dance and contemporary art – curated by dance curator Emma Saunders, held at the Campbelltown Arts Centre opening on 28 November 2009 until January 2010.

Previous performances of Talanoa: Walk the Talk I & II were commissioned by the Auckland City Council, New Zealand and held in April 2009.

I would like to thank the members of Mukti Gupteshwar Mandir Society and the Samoa Congregational Church Minto for their performances in Talanoa: Walk the Talk III which took place at the Minto Mall in Sydney on 8 August. You could see Lord Shiva and Jesus Christ were both present side by side engaging in spirit, through a touching performance…

Talanoa: Walk the Talk III

Shigeyuki Kihara has collaborated with the Mukti Gupteshar Mandir Society and the Congregational Christian Church Samoa to present Talanoa: Walk the Talk III, a work that explores cross-cultural relationships within communities.
