Griffin Theatre Company presents EXHALE by Black Birds
How do we find the light within the dark? How do we cultivate beauty out of sorrow and begin to heal, for ourselves and one another?
Interdisciplinary and intercultural, Exhale is about indigeneity, accountability and trauma. It explores the relationships and boundaries forged between Indigenous cultures on foreign lands; negotiations between environmental and urban lifestyles; and the ability to heal through storytelling.
Exhale is the creation of Black Birds—the Sydney collective fast gaining kudos for energetic, uplifting performances that astutely dissect the female Black and Brown experience in Australia. Incorporating art forms including spoken word, movement, dance, song and story, Black Birds’ work is at once intimate and unexpected, challenging and empowering.
