Overview

A Lake without Water began on Weereewa, a dry lake in the Southern NSW Tablelands. The project became a vehicle for making exchanges happen and creating new ways of being with people that live and work around the lake.

 

Weereewa became a theatre with farmers, an auctioneer and surveyors cast as its actors. The video pieces utilize the lake as a stage for instigating acts of play, documenting performances that acted as circuit breakers within the daily routines of work in and around the lake.
