PCPA + DIDG - Deaf Indigenous Dance Group (2021)
We are currently collaborating with members of the Deaf Indigenous Dance Group (DIDG) in Cairns, far north Queensland, on a series of photographs, interviews and artworks. Our ongoing collaboration is organic in nature and began after we met at the 2021 Laura Dance Festival in Cape York.
What started out as a documentary photography approach - in time - developed into a more engaged and sustained collaborative project that includes still photos, video, as well as oral and written stories.
This is a special, open-ended collaboration that we are enjoying very much. We envisage live and online exhibitions of this work when it has been fully realised. Until then we are thoroughly enjoying the process and learning a bit of sign too.
