tayenebe dance response

A movement piece created in response to the tayenebe exhibition by Grade 7 students, Ogilvie High School, Newtown Tasmania in 2009.

A culmination of Society and History and Dance investigation of Tasmanian Aboriginal history and culture, performed by both indigenous and non-indigenous students.  Inspired by the TMAG tayenebe exhibition, students created sequences based on the revival of traditional crafts, the intricate knots of the whalers and their part in the process of reconciliation.
