AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'A powerful ode to one of Australia’s most stunning regions from an author who writes with red dust in his veins. A secret plan is being cooked up to bring water from the monsoonal north of Australia to the south. But Government minister Michael Mooney needs to find out what opposition he might face around the river valley. He sends Kate Kennedy, his young, career-minded Chief of Staff, and political fixer Jack Cole on a ‘fact-finding’ trip. Ex-greenie Dylan Ward is their guide. Respected by both the mining industry and Aboriginal elder Vincent Yimi, Dylan is unaware that he has been compromised until their journey takes some unexpected turns. But as they travel through the wild river country, Kate begins to see Dylan and the world around her in a new light.' (Publication summary)

Excerpts from the writings of authors Kim Scott (That Deadman Dance) and Stephen Scourfield (As the River Runs) will be presented through dance, followed by brief insights from the choreographers into the process in which they engaged to bring these words to life in the studio. ...'
