2008 Carlton Courthouse Melbourne, Australia
Rakini Devi and Kenny Feather
Script and concept: Rakini Devi
Dance collaboration: Kenny Feather
Photographer & Projection design: Mayu Kanamori.
This Creative Development work, funded by Australia Council Dance Board, was presented at the Carlton Courthouse by La Mama, Melbourne.
The work was developed in collaboration with dancer Kenny Feather and Photographer Mayu Kanamori.
Utilising the vocabulary of Indian and Tai chi Martial arts, script and framed by Rakini Devi’s visual art, the two-day full-length work was well received. The work emerged as a response to Devi’s 2007 Asialink artist residency in Adi Shakti, Pondicherry and extended her studies into female infanticide in India.
