Perched in the midst of a gaping chasm, one woman defends her home against the ultimate destruction. Willingly stranded in an absurd world of paranoia, she fights everything and everyone.

Inspired by the story of Glenn Beutel who refused to leave his home in Acland even as an open-cut coal mine was built around him, Dust is a timely comment on the devastation wreaked by mining and our inability to find a better solution. The individual is pitted against big business and all levels of government - the only question now is how long one person can fight before the bulldozers arrive and insanity sets in.

With a potent mix of dark humour, thick black dust and a touch of the bizarre, Dust uses dance and video to interrogate the mess we ourselves have made and the neuroses that arise from open protest. It's a challenging, satirical and passionate journey as one woman tells you what she really thinks.

Choreographed and performed by Emiline Forster.
