Water conservation is key imagery through Opal Vapour.
Water is critical to life. The most receptive of all natural elements, water has the strength to move earth, extinguish fire and weaken metal to rust. As the last remnants of water drained from prehistoric Australia, colourful opal stones were created. Fossilised reptiles, insects, mammals, birds and human ancestors are found buried alongside these ancient and resolute opals.
"I anticipated a good show, however my expectations were surpassed by the sheer beauty of the performance and their clever, sensitive engagement with Javanese dance, theatre and music traditions."
