Blak Box: PRECARITIES is a 60 minute sonic journey curated by Daniel Browning featuring razor sharp spoken word and resonant music from First Nations artists Steven Oliver Eric Avery Lorna Munro and Rhyan Clapman (DOBBY) and Ancestress. It embraces the First Peoples concept of ‘deep listening’ which is based on stories silences and the spaces that lie between.
Since its inception in 2018 Blak Box has lead participants on a deep listening experience touring across Naarm Gadigal and Darug land. In 2022 Blak Box heads back to The Cutaway Barangaroo from 2 – 3 September. In this world premiere First Nations artists share individual and collective experience of precarity in an electrifying sonic artwork designed to move provoke and inspire.
This project has been assisted by the Australian Government through the Australia Council for the Arts its arts funding and advisory body.
The Cutaway is an expansive, partially open-air, below-ground space, with very good ventilation. Masks are highly recommended during the performance. Complimentary masks will be provided.
