Landfall and Departure: Epilogue
(Listening to the Sea)

The evening includes a performance by Willie Thrasher and Linda Saddleback.

Michele Di Menna, Ayesha Hameed, Lili Huston-Herterich, Dawn Johnston, Eleanor King, Orca Lab, Gary Manson, Colter Harper and Liz Park with Marcus Rediker, Genevieve Robertson, Jenni Schine and Jay White, Fiona Tan, Willie Thrasher and Linda Saddleback

Our history of the sea is a record of misunderstanding the cries of whales and the whispers of waves. But, as sea levels rise and fish stocks dwindle, being attuned to what the ocean is telling us is now more important than ever. Landfall and Departure: Epilogue endeavours to listen to the sea through contemporary visual art, sound works, presentations, and performances.
