Art and science combine to give voice to a river.

"On Jan 31 2019 Audrey Rose Burden joins me with scientists and other artists in the University of Technology Data Arena. Audrey dances in response to art work and music that each hold different stories of a river. Art work shows a woman lying in a river surrounded by dead fish - Menindee Fish Kill - by Melissa Williams-Brown in collaboration with Bonita Ely. Music is an improvisation by Eric Avery, a Ngiyampaa, Yuin, Bandjalang and Gumbangirr man, and I recognise in his voice the will for a flowing healthy river."
