Shima, Murasaki Penguin’s first creation in Australia, will be an interdisciplinary site-specific work created on Cockatoo Island. It will cross dance, sound, video, electronics and installation, with every medium influenced by the eerie, run-down, industrial – but also beautiful – nature of the island.
Murasaki Penguin tends to draw on themes including technology, isolation, beauty found in nature, the built environment and Australian and Japanese culture. Using a combination of dance, projection mapping, e-textiles and site recordings, they will collaborate with the textures, scale and ambience that make Cockatoo Island one of the most intriguing places in Australia.
Artists: Anna Kuroda, David Kirkpatrick
