Originally created as part of Springfest 2017, all-female youth group the Galaxy Girls are set to ‘bring the sound down’ with their live ‘Neon Caves’ performance. This original creation by the Galaxy Girls features dance, vocalisations, found sound recordings and projections.
Through the support of Barnardos Australia ‘Beyond Barbed Wire’ and Youth Reconnect program—run throughout Western NSW—the Galaxy Girls are a group of 7 local young women ranging in age from ten-to-15 years, who have developed this unique performance with creative mentoring and technical guidance from Signal Creative.
Inspired by their close connection with the Wellington region and proximity to the local Wellington Cathedral Caves and surrounding landscape, the Galaxy Girls NEON CAVES is the culmination of 5 months working together with Signal Creative duo Caroline Wallace and Emma Hoy. The Galaxy Girls’ conceived, recorded, photographed and compiled the original composition, and now look forward to bringing it to life with a dance and movement performance enhanced with spoken word, vocal sounds and animal ‘voices’.
With cave stalactite inspired neon glowing costumes, immersive stage design and artistic installations, the audience will be transported to a magical world, all evoked by the caves, and enhanced by these talented local girls’ creativity, with stimulus provided by Wellington’s animal, bird and insect life, both real and imagined!
7pm, 7:30pm, 8pm & 8:30pm
