“wickedly funny, existentially intimate, culturally complex, bitingly political and superbly danced” realtime
“This is one brilliant show… I am left dazzled by the virtuosity of Van Hout’s performance, her unmatched skill as a dancer and the biting creativity of her writing.” The Conversation
When you’re an artist from the world’s oldest living culture, expectations crowd your work. With gleeful humour and sharp observation, plenty serious TALK TALK puts front-and-centre the parts of Indigenous art-making that usually remain behind the scenes. Weaving threads of stand-up, visual art and new media into dance theatre, this brilliant new solo performance by renowned choreographer Vicki Van Hout skilfully lays bare the complexities of negotiating culture across disciplines, genres and eras.
Duration: 60 minutes
