Show info:
pakana dancer Sinsa Mansell presents her solo work celebrating the culture and courage of Tasmanian Aboriginal women.
BACK is an original solo dance conveying a story of Indigenous women after the brutal invasion of lutruwita/Tasmania in 1803. It presents the journey of a young pakana woman worn down by the daily drudge of domestic servitude. Yearning for connection, her ancestral DNA fosters the strength to embrace her cultural identity as a Tasmanian Aboriginal woman.
lutruwita/Tasmania’s leading pakana dancer Sinsa Mansell explores her millennia-old culture, its near-destruction and the resistance and courage that preserved it.
Richly supported by sound and projection, Sinsa’s deeply personal dance theatre creation, in collaboration with co-director Kate Champion, draws from traditional pakana and contemporary dance forms.
BACK is produced by Tasmania Performs.
