Restless is a dance performance that responds to the site of the historic Stamford Park Homestead.
Taylor appears as the spirit of an early settler who lingers uneasily around the site.
The spirit's restlessness is linked to her realisation of the ongoing effects of colonisation, conjured by the 1880s Homestead.
Dates to be announced.
Location – The Rowville Art Hub
