THE IMPOSSIBLE STORY OF THE AUSTRALIAN BUSH TURKEY AND ITS DOMINATION OF SYDNEY’S NORTH SHORE.
Part performance lecture, part hymn, and part transformative bush doof – Nature is Healing is a new performance work about the relationships between human and non-human animals sharing urban environments. Based on the story of the Australian bush turkey, Nature is Healing spotlights this misjudged scrub-dweller and its fight against the gentrification of urban areas.
Devised and performed by TOO RUDE – Emma McManus & Maria White
