Mother Tongue by Annalouise Paul

Mother Tongue is a kaleidoscope of woven dancescapes, rhythms and vocals from the Torres Strait Islands, India, Ghana, Polynesia, Indonesia and flamenco with contemporary body percussion and multimedia design inspired by sacred geometries and underpinned by a profound statement on war, cultural tolerance and healing.
Questioning the world we live in, our potential for change, Mother Tongue depicts humanity in flux, how we might learn from the past to re-imagine new futures. It celebrates and illuminates the uniqueness and differences of human beings - their cultures, art forms and ‘mother tongues’.
The third and final work in Annalouise Paul’s trilogy ‘Conversations in Rhythm + Dance’, its original interplay between contemporary and traditional musical systems, cultural dances and interactive media has already received acclaim as ‘unique and profound’ and ’will no doubt become a seminal work.’
Mother Tongue is supported through Arts NSW, Ausdance NSW, Bangarra Dance Theatre and FORM Dance.
