The Myth Of Gong And Drum

Author: ICle

Date: Wed 10 Feb 2016

What a wonderful experience we had in WA last week. The Canning River World Art Exchange was quite an event and we were honoured  to have been a part of it.  

Presented on the foreshore of Shelley Beach, Canning River (an outlying suburb of Perth), the balmy evening and stunning outdoor setting was both beautiful and inspiring. Canning is WA’s most multi-cultural council area, and 5,000 locals turned up to enjoy a concert curated by Artistic Director John McLaughlin that featured the Ede Gong Culture of Vietnam, Douglas Dunn and Dancers from New York (a little side point of interest: Douglas danced with Merce Cunningham and John Cage in the 1960s – an amazing connection to two artistic greats of the 20th Century), local dance troupe LINK, and the Canning Community Choir. Taikoz performed with all of these artists, which is a testament not only to John’s artistic vision, but to Taikoz’s ability to collaborate with such a wide variety of artists from other cultures and genres; I am very proud of the ensemble, in what was a very intense three days work!
