As we lose our memory, are we losing our history? How do we personally cope with political trauma or social upheaval? What stays within us, and what are the consequences of forgetting? This Here. Land investigates the turbulent histories of the Philippines and Australia, from colonisation to dictatorships, natural disasters and class warfare. Unearthing real and fictional fragments of memory, This Here. Land weaves together a hypnotic visual and theatrical experience through shadowplay, animation, live performance and storytelling.
This Here. Land is an exquisite new theatre work by LabAnino: a collective of Australian and Filipino artists who have been working together for over a decade and whose work spans performance, installation, writing, animation and sound. Developed between Australia and the Philippines over the past 2 years, This Here. Land is a moving and evocative response to turbulent global times.

LABANINO IN CONVERSATION WITH CAROLINE WAKE
SUN 22 OCT, 2:00 – 3:00PM
Don’t miss the opportunity to hear Australian and Filipino artists of cross-cultural collective LabAnino in conversation with researcher, archivist and UNSW Lecturer in Theatre and Performance, Caroline Wake. Cultural memory, contemporary performance, politics and the archive intersect in LabAnino’s new performance work This Here. Land, forming strong connections with Wake’s research into theatre and migration, performed oral history and the cultural afterlives of performance.
SHADOWS OF MEMORY WITH LABANINO
SAT 21 OCT, 2:00 – 5:00PM
Performers Kenneth Moraleda and Valerie Berry will guide you through a series of verbal and physical storytelling exercises to extract strong imagery and short narratives from your own personal stories and memories. Anino Shadowplay Collective will then assist participants to build their own shadow puppets, using recycled and found objects that will animate their narratives. The workshop will culminate in sharing your work.
