Performance Space is delighted to announce that we are touring the Stiff Gins’ epic performance Spirit of Things to Melbourne for the Yirramboi First Nations Arts Festival in May 2017. Commissioned for the 2016 Liveworks Festival, Spirit of Things explores the dispossession and spiritual repatriation of Indigenous cultural objects held in museum collections. The show developed over two years of residencies, research and creative development and seeks to awaken these objects, unlocking them through music, stories and performance to reconnect them with their communities and creators once more.

For this tour the Stiff Gins will be joined by musical collaborator Syd Green, director Felix Cross and lighting designer Fausto Brusamolino. Spirit of Things will also feature the stunning original visual design by Lucy Simpson and Mic Gruchy. We are thrilled to be able to bring this powerful work to Yirramboi and hope you can join us Melbourne Recital Centre in May.

Tickets available now!

Spirit of Things: The Sound of Objects is presented by Melbourne Recital centre un association with City of Melbourne as part of Yirramboi Festival.

Spirit of Things was commissioned by Performance Space for the 2016 Liveworks festival.
