Black Grace presents
Paradise Rumour
By Neil Ieremia

Here come the skybreakers, god traders
renovating my culture to fit in an apartment box
with a flat screen and a flat nose
dressed in white with black book measles, muskets and blankets
Flavour said ‘fight the power’
hand vs. knife,
knife vs. gun,
gun vs. bigger gun vs. bigger bomb, vs. bigger budget vs. bigger dick, vs. nothing left to
touch, feel, eat, see, or love

I who am

Must assimilate, replicate, dislocate, shut the gate so the sheep don’t relocate
to Australia, where the tax rate is lower,
human rights is slower
I will return to her someday
I owe her

- Neil Ieremia

Direct from a premiere at the Sharjah Biennial, UAE, Black Grace presents Paradise Rumour, a new work choreographed by Founding Artistic Director Neil Ieremia (ONZM), commissioned by Sharjah Art Foundation.
Paradise Rumour bounces back and forth through time and space, starting with the arrival of the missionaries to the Pacific, and collecting memories, visions, experiences both personal and collective.

Creative Director: Neil Ieremia
Composer: Anonymouz aka Faiumu Matthew Salapu
Lighting Designer: JAX Messenger
Costume Designer: Tina Thomas
Makeup Designer: Kiekie Stanners

Commissioned by Sharjah Art Foundation
