What needed to be done?
APAM (Australian Performing Arts Market) showcase local performers with the aim of increasing opportunities in both Australia and internationally. As part of 2018’s Market, held at Brisbane Powerhouse, APAM wanted to celebrate Brisbane’s Indigenous history. Riki Salam from We Are 27 Creative was the Indigenous artist chosen to create the central artwork which depicted the story of how the Brisbane River came to be. Our job was to work with Riki to animate his amazing piece into a video to be projected on the massive front wall of Brisbane Powerhouse.
What we did
We worked with artist Riki Salam, Shannon Ruska and the Nunukul Yuggera Aboriginal Dance Company to create an animated video which told the story of how Mundagurra (the Rainbow Serpent) created the Brisbane River. For the three nights of the festival the animation was projected onto the side of the iconic Brisbane Powerhouse, which was a pretty big feat in itself (that wall is huge!). The end result told a moving story about the very river running behind the building itself and gave us a project we’re really proud of.
Brisbane came out in their droves all three nights. The crowds grew each night as word got out about this spectacular and inspiring piece. It made us proud to play a small part in such an important event and great piece of storytelling.
