Hello my children! Come in my dears! I have a little plastix question I’d like to put to you… when the plastix madness is over, what will be left? I heard said…’plastic doesn’t go extinct’… what do you think?…
In these times troubled times and depending upon how you view the world, these are always troubled times… If we cannot install decolonised equity, bring peace and cause healing amongst humans, what hope is there for our non-human brothers and sisters who are dependent upon us for their survival… If our four lords of capitalism, consumerism, colonialism and Catholicism continue to reign… What will be left?… Do you think the micro-plastix will be lonely without us?
Today’s stats reveal that Australia currently has 6,713 confirmed cases of COVID-19, half of those in NSW alone. Worldwide we’re bordering on hitting 3 million positive cases, with over 206,000 deaths total, and sadly it just keeps growing.
It’s in times like these that we often doubt our sources of spirituality. Why me and my family? Why am I suffering despite being a strong person of faith?
When we initially explored ideas for using movement and text for a performance, we all assumed we’d have a live audience, a space to utilise and the backing of the Sydney Biennale to support us. When the spread of COVID-19 led to the closure of various locations and the banning of public gatherings, we had to be resourceful and adaptive to how we could continue staging this work with the Sisters.
