Eastern Reporter - - News - Lucy Jarvis

Per­for­mance artist Gen­re­fonix White Gum Val­ley will be tak­ing the stage of the Grav­ity Dis­cov­ery Cen­tre on Au­gust 11 and 12.

SOUNDS of the uni­verse have in­spired a mu­si­cal pro­duc­tion at the Grav­ity Dis­cov­ery Cen­tre this week­end.

Per­for­mance artists Gen­re­fonix will stage Wal­brininy on Au­gust 11 and 12 as part of Na­tional Sci­ence Week ac­tiv­i­ties at the cen­tre.

The per­for­mance will take the au­di­ence through the venue and in­clude the ar­rival of an alien and space­ship.

The cen­tre’s lead as­tronomer Rick Tonello, Noon­gar Elder Noel Nan­nup and the Mo­orditj Mob dancers, based at Wes­ley Col­lege in South Perth, will form the wel­come party for the alien.

The show will in­clude sci-fi film se­quences, live mu­sic and In­dige­nous sto­ry­telling to un­cover a world of spi­ralling neu­tron stars and demon­strate how sci­en­tists ‘lis­ten to the uni­verse’ fol­low­ing the dis­cov­ery of grav­i­ta­tional waves.

The Noon­gar con­cept of ‘wal­brininy’ means to­tal well­be­ing, all-en­com­pass­ing, ev­ery­thing con­nected and right.

In the show, Wal­brininy is a fic­tional planet that ex­isted 130 mil­lion years ago.
