Lake Song grew out of site-specific meditations and movement improvisations at Mirramu Creative Arts Centre and on the lakebed of Weereewa/Lake George. Learning from the ancient wisdom of the lake and the surrounding landscape, especially about ageing, we give gratitude to Nature for sustaining us in our lives.


Dance for Weereewa

After twenty years of dry, we give thanks to Nature for water.

We dance to celebrate the return of the water to Weereewa/ Lake George.
