The 9th Station: Jesus stumbles for the third time
14 – Via Crucis Australis, The Song Company
Sydney Town Hall

A performative version of Stations of the Cross commissioned by Sydney choral ensemble, The Song Company. 14 pieces of music from 14 classical composers was accompanied by the work of 14 artists. In keeping with the tradition of the ritual, audience members travelled through the space from station to station.

senVoodoo’s interpretation of The 9th Station: Jesus Stumbles for the Third Time was an observation of power, control and the silencing of protest. It made direct reference to the imprisonment of asylum seekers in Australia, at that time on hunger strike.
