I am currently undertaking an artist in residence in collaboration with theatre based artist Alex Desebrock. We have been granted two months in a mud brick house surrounded by forest to contemplate and create a new work. The Yarra Rriver a short stroll from the house and its waters are the source of inspiration for this new work.
The Yarra River that runs through my city is a very different beast to the one that is here. I hope to bring a little of this river back to the Melbourne for us all. This river is alive. It is nourishing. It makes my skin and hair feel soft after a swim. It makes me want to play with it. It makes me want to kiss it better.
Dear Melbourne, Imagine the Yarra was swimmable. Love from Kathy
