The Royal Botanic Gardens Victoria (RBGV) is partnering with Urban Theatre Projects (UTP) to present SEASONS in Blak Box at The Melbourne Observatory in Royal Botanic Gardens Victoria.
SEASONS is a multi-part sound work that explores the integral role of plants in the Kulin seasonal calendar. Through the time-honoured practice of deep listening, SEASONS invites audiences to experience climatic and seasonal variation less as a weather event and more as a cultural phenomenon.
Presented in Blak Box, an award-winning sound pavilion designed by renowned architect Kevin O’Brien, SEASONS is curated by highly respected Aboriginal broadcaster and radio journalist Daniel Browning. Urban Theatre Projects is a leading contemporary arts organisation based in Western Sydney. This is the fourth presentation in the Blak Box series, and the first outside of New South Wales.
SEASONS is a work that is well suited to people who are blind or vision impaired as it is a listening experience in which the audience can experience music, spoken word and song from First Nations artists.
An Auslan performance will take place on Sunday 22 March at 6pm.
Proudly supported by the Australia Council for the Arts and City of Melbourne. Presented as part of Melbourne Design Week 2020, an initiative of the Victorian Government in collaboration with the NGV.
