Imagining Lutriwita’s Deep Time: a journey through science, art and song – a regional tour

  • - (AEST)
  • Wynyard Yacht Club
    2A Old Bass Highway, Wynyard TAS 7325, Australia

Join us for a performance art journey through Deep Time at one of four beautiful regional locations around Tasmania - Wynyard, Queenstown, Launceston and Scottsdale.

This event combines science with story-telling, music and the visual arts to journey through this beautiful island's often surprising geological history: from its birth at the edge of Nuna, an ancient supercontinent, through to the development of the Gondwanan rainforests, the eruptions that formed Mt Ossa, and the much more recent climatic fluctuations that have seen the sea levels rise and fall across Bass Strait. Our story ends with the arrival of the First People.

Palaeoecologist Dr Penelope Jones will narrate this journey through our island's coupled geological and ecological history, accompanied by evocative and interwoven music from Emily Sheppard, Yyan Ng and Georgia Shine. Amy Jackett will create some live art along the way.

The event will run for approximately 60 minutes.
