Following the movement of our planet around the sun, the weather changes and nature responds in colour and shape to the wind and the rain, the shadows and the sunshine. The traditional four seasons of Spring, Summer, Autumn, and Winter have been depicted in European art and music for centuries, but the Aboriginal experience of the seasons is a much more varied and subtler story that tells of the patterns of animal and plant life and their direct impact on survival. In this sympathetic synthesis of two artforms The Song Company is joined by a duo of dancers from Thomas E.S. Kelly’s Karul Projects to trace the course of the Earth’s annual journey in movement and song, both old and new.


Program and choreography including:
fragments from Antonio Vivaldi’s The Four Seasons
and music ranging from Alice Chance Pallah-Pallah
to Francis Poulenc Un soir de neige
