About Ten Days on the Island and Bushland
Ten Days is Tasmania’s state wide arts festival. Since its inception in 2001, it aims to showcase Tasmania’s finest artists alongside the world’s best.
For 2019, Ten Days has been re-imagined. For the first time, the Festival will be spread over three weekends, reaching audiences across three diverse regions of island. This years festival is led by Lindy Hume, an acclaimed international festival and opera director. She directed the Sydney Festival and Perth Festival and is a passionate advocate for the arts in regional Australia.
Lindy selected our work for Ten Days after experiencing Woodland at Brighton Festival 2018. Bushland is an adaptation of that work, tailored for the unique impacts of the Australian temperate forest, and informed by local forensic experts, ecologists and Aboriginal knowledge. For Ten Days, Bushland will be shown across all three regions and weekends of the festival, the only outdoor work to do so.
