Art will spill out onto the MCA forecourt as Deborah Kelly leads a special solstice event. Developed by the artist with audiences throughout June, this performance is a joyous collective ritual welcoming you to CREATION – a newly invented queer, science fiction and climate-change focussed religion.
Bringing together dance, projections, iconography and music – this performance is a call to take a stand, a step and a whirl. Audiences are invited to take part in the ceremony and encouraged to wear white. No experience necessary.
This performance may contain strong language. Please note, performance will go ahead, rain or shine.
About the Creation
CREATION offers a sense of sacredness, ritual and connection. Instigated by Australian artist Deborah Kelly in collaboration with a host of artists, musicians, poets and friends, the project is currently presented at the Museum of Contemporary Art (MCA) as part of The National 2021: New Australian Art exhibition.

About Angela Goh
Angela Goh is a dancer and choreographer who lives and works in Sydney. Her work has toured across Australia and to Europe, the UK, the USA and Asia. Her work poses possibilities for disruption and transformation inside the aesthetics and conditions of technocapitalism, planetarity, and the post-Anthropocene.

About SEET Dance
Charemaine Seet founded Seet Dance when she returned to Sydney from New York. SEET Dance is a contemporary dance school that, in the words of Ausdance NSW, has become the “foremost place in Sydney where dance is taught as a contemporary art form”. “As a choreographer and former principal dancer in leading dance companies in London and New York, I had a vision to offer children the same artistic stimulus I encountered working with pioneering dance makers. I was taking a wild leap but I believe the experiment is succeeding and my students are taking flight.”
