Description

Passing

Presented in association with Darebin Arts’ Speakeasy

Amrita Hepi & Jahra Wasasala | NEW ZEALAND


Using the notion of racial passing as a catalyst for a series of movement monologues, spoken word passages and physical conversations, Passing maps two bodies under pressure from the responsibility that comes from being of mixed cultural background.

A trans-pacific partnership of physical force, Passing combines Amrita Hepi’s hip-hop prowess and background in contemporary dance with Jahra Wasasala’s grounded and ritualistic choreographic style to create a provocative, complex and deeply magnetic work—a physical dialogue that exists between two daughters of diaspora.

Bringing together some of Australia’s most talented creatives including an original score by Lavern Lee (Guerre, Cassius Select, Black Vanilla) and styling by installation artist Honey Long, Passing is an evocative portrait of the ‘exotic’, and the exhausting effects the title can bear.

“Amrita doesn't just make the political personal; she makes it physical and impossible to ignore” – Nakkiah Lui
