Research output: Non-textual formTheatre & Performance


The Unbound Collective seeks to engage Aboriginal community members who historically have been contained and excluded within and beyond the mortar and boundaries of Adelaide’s so-called cultural precinct, and to speak back to colonial institutions of power as dominant repositories of knowledge. Each member of the collective singularly and collectively addresses the notions of ethical practice and responsibility, enacting memory and storytelling, and offers an interrogation of state colonial archives. They explore complex ideas around being free or bound, and offer poetic, performance and music-based investigations of sovereign identity and (re)representation.
