In There Was A River, the artists from the ‘stArts with D’ Performance Ensemble tell their story of a river flowing through the red hills. Written by Tiffany Malthouse, Devona Palmer and the ‘stArts with D’ Performance Ensemble, There Was A River is told in English, Arrernte and many Auslan signs for Unbroken Land 2020.

There Was A River was co-created with Mentor, Lauren Jones, and performed by the artists, through the Incite Arts Move Master’s program. This initiative supported artists to develop skills, knowledge and confidence in their performance practice through dance, movement, music, language, storytelling and film.

Please note, some Auslan signs have been modified to suit everyone’s abilities.

Incite Arts present ‘Unbroken Land’ which is about bringing people together through community arts practice to experience diverse stories of belonging, celebrations of culture and our place in the landscape.

The ‘Unbroken Land’ water themed video works showcase the talents of our Alice Springs community on more far reaching online platforms, and to far greater audiences than the original planned live event. Access and inclusion will remain at the very heart of the virtual Unbroken Land, with closed captioning and audio description access features.
