Water Stories, The Fitters Workshop, Kingston, Canberra
Alexander Boynes featuring PRAXIS
Thursday 10th – Sunday 13th November 2016
As part of the inaugural Contour 556 Festival, Water Stories is a large-scale video installation work based upon the theme of water, and it’s significance to Australian culture and history. Water Stories has been produced collaboratively with dancers and musicians involved in Arnhembrand, an art, science and stories project that promotes the objectives of healthy country and communities in the Djelk Indigenous Protected Area, Arnhemland, Northern Territory. The second collaboration is PRAXIS; a multi-disciplinary art collective Alexander Boynes established with dancer / choreographer Laura Boynes, and cellist / composer Tristen Parr in 2013, who premiered their first major work Dark Matter at the State Theatre Centre of Western Australia in September 2016.
