Unfolding the earth skin. Flesh meets stone.

STONE is an intimate and atmospheric performance with a dancer, a cellist, and a mountain of river stones. Connecting to the landscape and Murrumbidgee River in Wagga Wagga, STONE is a meditation on nature and deep time exploring the symbiotic relationship between evolution, geology, rivers and humanity.
