House of Oz presents Common Dissonance by Na Djinang Circus

August 4, 2023 @ 4:30 pm - August 27, 2023 @ 5:30 pm

common dissonance

In a 21st Century world where it is common to believe in both spirituality and science, how can we navigate the complex dialogues that consume contemporary culture?

For thousands of years in Australia, understanding of the world came from dreamtime stories, song lines, and oral histories, all of which are still relevant to many Australians. Our environment is riddled with the hypocrisies of a culturally diverse past lingering in the wake of a globalised present.

Featuring two contemporary performers with shared and distinctly individual experiences, this work aims not only to explore the harmony and conflict of contemporary Australian reasoning, but to find a Common Dissonance.

A contemporary circus work exploring the struggle between traditional and modern modes of reasoning.



Performed by Isabelle Champagne-Chittick & Johnathan Brown (Anawan, Kamilaroi)
Directed by Harley Mann (Wakka Wakka)
Lighting Designer Tim Bonser
