TREE OF KNOWLEDGE by Christian Thompson at Liveworks Festival

Acclaimed Indigenous artist Christian Thompson presents Tree of Knowledge: a rich solo performance that transforms dreams, memories and aspirations into surreal gestures, invoking a world where tradition, pop culture and media continually collide.

Bringing together song, spoken word, sculpture, video and movement, Tree of Knowledge draws on Thompson's own personal biography as well as a wide palette of references -- from pop music to contemporary art and cultural practices. Tree of Knowledge is a rare opportunity to witness Thompson's live performance practice in full effect: a startling, humorous and confronting insight into contemporary Indigenous reality (and fantasy).
