About the Show

Of the Land on Which We Meet.  What does it mean to be where we are? Opening up the acknowledgement of Country and taking a closer look within it, Na Djinang circus searches for a way to address the possible lack of connection contemporary Australians have with the spirituality of the land. The performance follows three contemporary Australian circus artists with distinct relationships with Country: an indigenous Australian, a descendant of migrants and a descendant of colonial settlers.

Of the Land on Which We Meet hopes to re-discover a connection we once had on Country with 60,000 years of history, spirit and story. “ Every day across the continent, people “acknowledge” country in this place – but what does that really mean? Do these acknowledgements carry serious respect – are they just empty words? How deep is our connection to this country – to its history, and its First Peoples? What do we really know about this land upon which we meet?”
