The Mayor’s ‘personal favourite’ from Hume’s recent festival was
CuriousWorks’ Meet+Eat Gala Film Premiere! Nice!
“Cr Porter said the festival provided people with a great selection to
choose from. He said his personal favourite was Meet and Eat, a series of
short films documenting cultural stories which were shown at Craigieburn
A call-out to Western Sydney’s Musicians:
We are looking for some locally produced instrumental rhythmic beats to be
incorporated into our newest project- RITUAL: A visual representation of a
day in Western Sydney!
Words that come to mind: atmospheric, intense, world music fusion. We
welcome culturally influenced music!

Mysterious, beautiful and utterly captivating, Zameen is a contemporary dance and multimedia work that pulls you into the heart of a remote Indian community fighting for their way of life.
Within this world, two dancers from one of India’s leading contemporary dance companies, the much lauded Attakkalari – perform an intense, controlled and intricate dance score, inspired by the stories and movement of the community.
An immersive audiovisual environment – built entirely out of recordings done on site with the community itself – sustains the show, pitching you from the very start in the midst of their song and struggle to secure land in the face of large scale damn development.
Both politically provocative and deeply emotional, Zameen simultaneously depicts both the success of this incredible social movement and the ongoing sacrifices made to preserve it.
Don’t miss this opportunity to see brilliant performers from one of India’s most exciting contemporary dance companies, paired up with co-creators Jehan Kanga, award winning Australian composer Leah Barclay and CuriousWorks Artistic Director S. Shakthidharan, whose The Other Journey experience in Parramasala 2011 quickly became one of the most talked about events in the festival’s history.
Zameen is a partnership between CuriousWorks, Attakkalari Centre for Movement Arts, Jehan Kanga, Leah Barclay and S. Shakthidharan. It is the first major outcome from The Dam(n) Project.
CuriousWorks invites you to the
Meet+Eat Gala Film Premiere in Hume VIC
5th October 2013
5pm – 8pm
Join us for an exciting night of entertainment, food tastings and film to
commemorate a fantastic first year of Meet+Eat and to launch the first
films of the series to come out of Hume, VIC.
2013 has seen the emergence of some incredible stories that celebrate the
extraordinary and culturally rich lives of a number of Hume residents. We
have also witnessed an unprecedented enthusiasm from the local community to
get involved, learn, share and experience a deeper understanding of the
diversity in our community. The Meet+Eat Gala Film Premiere will celebrate,
with all those involved, the achievements of the community and the project
The event will showcase the first three episodes to come out of Hume, VIC.
These extraordinary films are a result of CuriousWorks’ collaboration with
four families, two established local groups and a huge variety of
participants from Hume’s vibrant and diverse community. The films visit
issues of immigration, displacement, identity, inter-cultural exchange,
personal history, undiscovered talent, dance, youth culture, traditional
singing, cooking, eating and new friendship. All films are set to
exquisitely composed music by local musician David Osborne and various
collaborators from the community. This intimate view of Hume is a wonderful
opportunity to visit Another Australia!
The Gala Film Premier will feature film screenings, food tastings and live
music performances by David Osborne, Yousif Aziz, the Samoan Community
Choir, Meadows Primary School Choir and Gladstone Park Primary School Choir.
Meet+Eat is an initiative of CuriousWorks, with the generous support of
VicHealth, Scanlon Foundation and Hume City Council’s Community Grants
Program. This event is part of 2013 Hume Festival of Music.
