by campbelltownartscentre

Thank you to all that made it to Campbelltown Arts Centre last Friday evening for the Opening of Edge of Elsewhere.

In addition to the opening speeches, the visitors were treated to a spectacular live performance, Culture for Sale (2012) by Shigeyuki Kihara. For the performance, four traditional Samoan dancers were positioned on low-lying plinths in the gallery space. Placed in front of each, idle performer was a money bowl. Only when an audience member placed money in the bowl, could the performers begin their dancing routine.
