Description

Spoken Word Performance: Lost Tales Live by Travis De Vries

In response to time spent in the Australian Museum’s Indigenous cultural collections, Travis De Vries presents Lost Tales Live, a story-telling performance work.

Every object in the museum collection holds knowledge and stories in their very core that we as people can access if we know how. Lost Tales begins this process bringing elements of traditional storytelling with contemporary song and animation. To the artist, each of these objects is representative of their greater spiritual legacy and the larger Indigenous culture, and it’s what we do with them now that is important.

Every culture has folk-lore, stories that we tell each other to keep the darkness from invading into the daylight. There are stories as old as antiquity that permeate our daily lives, Lost Tales digs them up and brings them into the light. Exploring the undocumented side of our history, folk tales, urban legends, culture heroes and creatures are all examined and exposed in gripping original tales. Creatures, spirits, gods, demons from antiquity are dredged up as we join Travis De Vries for a journey into the untold stories of Australia.

Drawing from a rich legacy of oral story-telling passed down through his Gamilaroi heritage, Lost Tales Live is a woven tapestry of myths featuring live musical accompaniment and specially commissioned animations that draw from the sacred myths and legends of Australia and it’s first peoples.

In a clash of cultures some things change, others are lost but the stories will always live on.

Show will have projections, a cellist and a storyteller.
