Performance at Bunjilika, Melbourne Museum, 2007.
Puppet Maker. ‘Old Patterns, New Beats’ was directed by Rachel Maza
I worked with Lachlan Plain to realise these puppets. They represent the spirits of the clans of the Kulin Nation. I studied the koorie grass coiling technique at the Koorie Heritage Trust with Aunty Dot a while ago. The body of each torso uses this technique. The heads were lit from within.
I saw these guys floating around me before they came into being
It was a privilege to be given permission to work on such a special commission. These spiritual beings hold great significance.
