At PICA we recognise that we are situated within the unceded lands of the Whadjuk people of the Noongar Nation. We pay our respects and offer our gratitude to Elders past and present, and to those emerging leaders in the community. We acknowledge all Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people and the importance of their care and continued connection to culture, community and Country.

Always was, always will be.

The Unknown Soldier

The Unknown Soldier

Eye for eye, tooth for tooth, hand for hand, foot for foot…
– Exodus 21.24 King James Bible
Exploring the concept of fear through the eyes of the Terrorist, this creative development is inspired by the unknown and unidentified women affected by war. The Unknown Soldier looks at the motives of a woman who feels she has nothing to lose and the broader context of our obsession with security and terrorism.
Sally Richardson and her team will develop the sound and its interplay with the textual and physical elements of this future work, investigating the potential as a chamber-style voice opera/new music performance.
