Thomas Reiner’s performance project Flayed Identities has received funding from the Australia Council for the Arts through the Lake Bolac Eel Festival in the Western District of Victoria. The project focuses on Indigenous involvement in Australia’s wars, particularly in WW1. The performance of Flayed Identities will take place on Saturday March 22 this year at the yearly Lake Bolac Eel Festival and consists of an electroacoustic movement by Kim Lajoie with two brass players, Tristram Williams and Paul Williamson, in boats on the lake, a narration by Indigenous Elder Ted Lovett, and Reiner’s setting of John McCrae’s poem In Flanders Fields for community choir and Indigenous bass-baritone Tiriki Onus. The performance will be accompanied by images created by Rozalind Drummond.
