Current Exhibitions 

Anna-Wili Highfield: Mating Dance
2 July – 18 September

MATING DANCE Anna-Wili Highfield MWRC Website Event Listing 1.jpg

Mating Dance by Anna-Wili Highfield is an installation of life-sized brolgas in courtship formations. The sculptures pay homage to Australia’s principal dancing bird renowned for its spectacular movements during breeding season. Made from cotton paper and brass, the birds are suspended like marionettes, frozen mid-ballet in a gesture of call, response and mimicry. Composer and musician Bree Van Reyk has created the accompanying sound piece which will intermittently join the dancing birds with instrumentals inspired by the brolga’s bold trumpeting.
