Under the Same Sky

Leonie Van Eyk

Under the Same Sky is a video art installation highlighting traditional dance featuring up to six cultural artists/performers exhibiting their skills. The dancers were filmed embracing the conceptual idea of movement and stillness. This projection offers the opportunity for social connectedness within the diverse cultural landscape, incorporating the artists, their cultural community and those willing to participate in this social experiment as voyeurs. The project provides a platform for everyone to see themselves as part of a greater whole and inevitably expand our community’s cultural horizon.

Multicultural Arts Victoria’s Emerge Cultural Hub is a key partner and has aided in facilitating access to the cultural groups illuminating the vibrant cultural practices that are alive in Bendigo.

Dancers: Camila Serrano, Angela Zheng, Liming Liao, Dabora Nyanduk, Sei Seimu Thein, Abby Perdon.

This project is curated and originally presented by Enlighten: A Festival of Projection, a City of Greater Bendigo Event occurring in the lead up to White Night Bendigo. 

Enlighten: A Festival of Projection is supported by the Regional Centre for Culture Program, a Victorian Government initiative in partnership with the Dja Dja Wurrung Clans Aboriginal Corporation and the City of Greater Bendigo.
