Throughout Western Australia, iron ore, bauxite and other minerals are being mined and transported via ports, roads and railways to China, India and other booming economies. As the Canadian environmental photographer Edward Burtynsky recently observed, whenever one sees a skyscraper, one can imagine somewhere a hole at least as big which has furnished the raw materials for the building. The super-pit outside Kalgoorlie is one such reciprocal cavity whose contents facilitate constructions in distant lands and in Perth itself.
The Australasian Association for Theatre, Drama and Performance Studies (ADSA) invites participants to metaphorically re-imagine the boom and bust phenomena in cultural and aesthetic terms.
The 2009 ADSA Conference is hosted by Western Australian Academy of Performing Arts, Edith Cowan University, Curtin University and Murdoch University.
