‘Stiff Gins are one of Australia’s most highly acclaimed indigenous folk/pop/vocal groups.’ Chaos
A moving sonic response to Indigenous objects and artefacts held in museum collections globally, Spirit of Things is a new music-based performance work by Nardi Simpson and Kaleena Briggs, members of the award-winning musical duo, the Stiff Gins, in collaboration with renowned British director Felix Cross.
Simpson and Briggs became concerned by the disconnection and distance between Indigenous cultural objects in numerous museum collections and their ancestral country. To the artists, objects such as these are more than mere shadows of the past: they are living entities, buzzing with life.
Spirit of Things will awaken these objects, unlocking them through music, stories and performance to reconnect them with their communities and creators once more.
