WEREDINGO

Karul Projects

Presented by Metro Arts and Brisbane Festival

Karul’s signature sharp movement and humour will challenge what you think you know about shapeshifting.

Bones break, blood boils and bodies morph as the dingo howls deep into the night. Always watching, the wedge-tailed eagle carries generational knowledge on its wingspan. A colony of jittery ants explore new terrain, peering into every nook and cranny. And the Lyre, bird imitating art? Or appropriating its true purpose. Can you relate?

Come in, grab a biccy and a cuppa. All shapes and kinds are accepted here, this is a safe space and not your usual support group.

Through Karul’s signature sharp movement, combined with text, song and projections, they challenge what you think you know about shapeshifting.

If you’re ready to join the support group, wear your animal loud and proud. Dress in your fur, fleece or feathers; your beaks, claws or tails. All animal outfits are welcome whether it be cloaks, coats, make up, or masks.
