Story of a Wanderer – Castlemaine State Festival – March
MARCH Monday 25th, Tuesday 26th & Wednesday 27th
4 pm and 7.30 pm sessions
Abdi Karya’s motto is “Don’t think. Feel.” The performance artist, theatre-maker and cultural manager from Makassar, Indonesia, has created a truly tactile performance for the Castlemaine State Festival. Using the sarung (or sarong) to portray shapes, styles, feelings and memories, Story of a Wanderer is inspired by a 14th-century manuscript written in the Bugis language of Sulawesi.
This project has been assisted by the Australian Government through the Australia Council for the Arts, its arts funding and advisory body.
