Event Series Event Series: Terra


19 January @ 7:30 pm 8:20 pm


terra is a 50min dance work informed by the knowledge of current and impending ecological loss. An un-trackable choreographic momentum evokes the incremental movement of earth’s tectonic plates; the elemental power of the natural world pushed to its limits and the forces that create change. 

Erupting from an imagination placed under pressure for decades, terra, invites us to feel what is happening to the earth, whilst creating something of awe and beauty. With each performance, a unique topographical sculptural residue remains, inviting the audience to continue their imaginative engagement with the work.

This piece emerged conceptually and choreographically from Alice’s experience of living in Victoria, through the pandemic, fires, flooding, threatening winds and an earthquake –disquiet was omnipresent. The resurgence of the natural world during the lockdowns, particularly in urban spaces, brought an acute awareness of human impact on our living world.

‘She moved with the kind of felt precision that could change the meaning of the space around her. She touched the floor and suddenly it was alive. The experience was pure and electrifying’ (Erik Jensen, Editor-in-chief, Schwartz Media,  January 2022).


Alice Cummins is a multi-disciplinary artist, working in dance, film, performance and installation. Five decades exploring the nuanced intelligence of the moving body, interrogating and challenging its social and cultural narratives, have led to compositional refinement and the distillation of experience into physical performance where aesthetics, ethics and physiology collide. Her current performance projects reflect the entwinement of personal/artistic, colonial, and planetary histories.
