For Origins 2013, Border Crossings is bringing to London some of the world’s foremost indigenous musicians, dancers and choreographers, theatre-makers, visual artists, film-makers and cooks, to perform and inform, to exhibit and explain, to debate and celebrate.
First Nations are ancient cultures – including Aboriginal Australian, Inuit, Māori, Maya, Native American, Pacific Islanders, Papuan, Sámi, Saharawi, and Gaelic.
Most of the artists are being seen in London for the first time, and will share with you sights, sounds and stories which originate far from any beaten track.
