Event Olivia Adams: Still Standing

Olivia Adams: Still Standing


23 September 2023

Reflecting on the themes of placemaking in Rainbow Serpent (Version), Olivia Adams (Wulli Wulli) responds to imposing and grotesque imagery used by the colony. In this performance, Adams considers the colonial architecture of Meanjin/Brisbane, using contemporary movement to reclaim the city space.
