Opening Scene

Be taken on a journey in which Queenstown’s myths and realities slowly merge with the landscape. Starting in the dress circle of the 1930s Paragon cinema and finishing at a table in the foyer cafe, A Score to Scratch the Surface (Opening Scene) is a roaming sound work composed of local field recordings, archival sounds and fragments of stories reflecting the diverse threads that link people to an environment.

The Unconformity acknowledges the palawa people as the original and traditional custodians of lutruwita/Tasmania. We commit to working respectfully to honour their ongoing cultural and spiritual connections to this land.
