Black Crows Invaded Our Country – Sizzle Reel


An artistic contextualisation of the public lecture that merged academic research with poetry, performance and live art.

Performed at the University of Sydney’s JD Stewart Building, home of the Sydney School of Veterinary Science, this artistic hybrid of the public lecture, story and performance gathered a diverse range of artists, performers, researchers and activists to respond to the haunting and complex issue of human migration.

Animateur Michelle St Anne highlights parallels in the inconsistencies of logic, scapegoating, justifications and fears of what promises to be a problem in a perceived future.
