'One hundred and eleven years ago, relatives of My Darling Patricia's Clare Britton were murdered by an Aboriginal Bushranger, Jimmy Governor, on a property in the Hunter Valley. Taking it's name from the ruins of the house where Clare's relatives died, Posts in the Paddock is a major new performance and installation.
'Posts in the Paddock' sees My Darling Patricia collaborate with Indigenous actor Leroy Parsons, who discovered while developing this work that he is Jimmy Governor's, great-great-grandson; and elder Aunty Rhonda Dixon-Grovenor also shares a family connection to the Governors. The work also features an installation by acclaimed visual artist Fiona Foley. Combining sculpture, animation, puppetry, performance and oral histories, Posts in the Paddock is a powerfully immersive experience.' (Source: Performance Space website)
