under today by red shoes performance makers was a project developed by Alice Springs based writer and performer-maker Dani Powell. The show underwent an intensive development process in 2009 before going into full scale production as 'Under today - traces of Eastside' for a 3 night season in Alice Springs NT in 2012.
I was involved in this project as a performer, researcher and illustrator.
In Dani's words :
'A contemporary, cross-disciplinary performance Under Today – traces of Eastside utilized dance/ movement, media, live music and a soundscape composed of previously unrecorded stories of the local Indigenous and non-Indigenous community, to trace the points of tension, connection and loss in this town called Alice Springs or Mparntwe.'
In 2015, the performance was re-worked into a piece for Radio National:
