AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'Life Is Short and Long is a performance installation created from three years of travel yarns and investigation of how people respond to crisis and change.

'Performance-maker Emma Beech turns a bitter-sweet catalogue of human resilience in the seemingly disparate locations of Barcelona, Wirrabara in the mid-North of South Australia, and Port Adelaide, into a magical, witty and occasionally utopian meditation on human nature.

'Beautiful, insightful and surprising, Life Is Short and Long brings to life a multitude of characters and stories told from the point of view of an artist on the road, who discovers the unexpected turns of life for herself along the way..' (Production summary)
