Music by Nick Wales and Bree van Reyk and Ngaire
As New Caledonia moves towards a vote on independence from France in 2018, Le Dernier Appel explores recuperation in the aftermath of colonisation, questioning what to embrace of the new and what to let fall, while asking how these concerns can regenerate dance in the Asia Pacific region.
Le Dernier Appel is an intercultural and trans-Indigenous production, with dancers of First Nations, immigrant and settler descent from Australia and New Caledonia. It is directed and co-choreographed by Marrugeku’s Associate Artist Serge Aimé Coulibaly (Burkina Faso/Belgium) and co-choreographed with Marrugeku’s Dalisa Pigram with dramaturgy by Rachael Swain. Le Dernier Appel is designed by New Caledonian artist Nicolas Molé and music is by Ngaiire, Nick Wales and Bree Van Reyk.
