Sovereign Acts III – REFUSE is the third work in a trilogy of research, video and performance works by The Unbound Collective. Called Bound and Unbound: Sovereign Acts, the trilogy has explored the capacity of ideas to both bind and set free, alongside cultural continuance and institutional containment. The Unbound Collective brings together four First Nations women who are working across art, activism and academia.
Sovereign Acts III – REFUSE continues their investigation through the lens of community continuity, environmental campaigning, and the Port River. Through their ongoing research and collaborative practices Unbound are exploring critical-creative resistance and refusal to acts of environmental degradation on Aboriginal land, the role of Aboriginal women in caring for Country, intergeneration transmission of knowledge and sovereignty through protest.
Join Unbound and their collaborators (including performer and language activist, Dr. Lou Bennett, and violinist Katie Inawantji Morrison) for a very special evening event, in two parts, that brings together this research through performance, ceremony and conversation.
