About this event

An experimental blend of mediums that follows no structure, no criteria and no rules.

What happens when artists are free to create in the wild with talking trees, earthy beats, heartfelt stories, improv. folk and meandering orators amongst fresh water, sunset-lit gums, the evening chorus, and dusty toes?

Bring a torch and picnic...and settle in.

Presented by:
Olenka Toroshenko, Magic Tortoise and Co

Olenka Toroshenko is a Ukrainian Canadian artist, writer and producer whose life is in service to a saner and more enlivened existence. She is a multidisciplinary performer whose mediums include spoken word poetry, dance, clowning, song and ritual performance art.

Magic Tortoise bring you their dreamy blend of alternative folk. Rich storytelling, whimsical chord progressions and ornate finger-style guitar are woven together with improvisational flair and unadulterated joy at making music together.

Jason Tyndall (photographer and poet), Hugh Kneebone (visual artist), Matthew Leigh Hamilton (percussion), Natasha Dawson (nature connection guide) James Strong (afro beats) and Co, all lend their unique flair to the 'wild'. Artwork by: Freddie Houman (instagram: @_solar punk).
