Tectonic exists within shifts: Shifts in land, sea, time, space and thought. Dancenorth joins forces with the Urab Dancers from Poruma Island, Torres Strait, for the creation of this bold new collaboration. Measuring 1.1 kilometres long and 400 metres wide, Poruma is home to 180 residents and is about as close to paradise as you can get. However as global sea levels begin to rise, Poruma is slowly sinking. Performed along a beautiful stretch of the Townsville Strand, Tectonic unites sculpture, movement and sound in a dazzling performance.
