Abstract

Hummingbird' explores 'environment' told through the shared stories and histories of the performers. It is an intercultural work combining live music and dance by Aboriginal artist Lee West and Indian classical dancer Dawn Jackson (who uses Odissi & Kathak dance styles). Based on an original song by Lee West titled 'Hummingbird', this contemporary performance work draws its inspiration from the fearless hummingbird and the diverse skills and cultural backgrounds of the performers. Through verbal storytelling, music and dance 'Hummingbird' delights with originality and purpose discovering a new intimacy between Aboriginal and English/Australian cultures.

Set design by Matt McVeigh. Lighting design by Joseph Mercurio. Season was 19th - 22nd January 2012. Seating capacity of 100. Show duration of 45 minutes.
