Anya and Katina connect with seven inspirational Australian women from their communities, investigating their work as women to begin to unpack and rediscover what this phrase means to women today.
Work in Development
A woman’s work is never done.
But what is a woman’s work today?
Anya and Katina connect with seven inspirational Australian women from their communities, as a way to begin to unpack and rediscover what this phrase means today.
Woman’s Work is an evolving work for the real and digital world. Site-specific and adaptable, the work integrates a kaleidoscope of image, movement and sound including dance-film, live dance performance, and nine moving video portraits of Australian women.
From land to flesh and back to land Katina and Anya uncover and share stories, discovering the relentless beauty and hopeful determination that exist within a woman’s work.
This project is cumulative, this is just the beginning, its structure is built to be infinite, eventually including more female-identifying voices.
