Description A fortuitous meeting3 in Alice Springs between Ken Evans and Central Australian cultural advisor, Clive Scollay, led to the opportunity for the evolving work to be further researched in a cultural exchange residency at Angajta outstation in South Australia. It led too, to Handspan’s engagement of Peter Oyston to develop and direct the work through a Theatre Laboratory experience based on Peter Brook’s methods that created The Conference of the Birds in Africa4.
