We know it’s a been an interesting year.
We’re collecting dedications and songs for people you’ve been thinking about. In their presence or absence.

In the lead up to the 2021 Fremantle Biennale, an international hotline for dedications and song requests will be open by artist and choreographer Amrita Hepi.

Taking cue’s from Noongar Radio’s popular Inside Out, a radio show connecting loved ones separated due to prison, this hotline invites you to leave a dedication, a message or a song, to a loved one you haven’t seen due to the nature of confinement.

A lone and lit podium, the size of a solitary confinement cell in Australia, will become the site for re-dancing the collected dedications during the Biennale, in a continuous audio and dance work.

About the artist

Amrita Hepi

Amrita Hepi (b. 1989, Townsville of Bundjulung/Ngapuhi territories) is an award-winning artist working with dance and choreography through video, the social function of performance spaces, installation and objects. Using hybridity and the extension of choreographic or performative practices, Amrita creates work that considers the body’s relationship to personal histories and the archive.

Amrita has worked with leading Australian dance companies and choreographers such as Marrugeku, Force Majeure, The Western Australian Indigenous Dance company (Ochres) Melanie Lane, Bhenji Ra and Victoria Chiu. She has been an artist-in-residence at BANFF Centre for the Arts Canada, ACE OPEN South Australia, PACT Sydney.
