Much like Rome’s ancient stage for vast public spectacles, Queenstown itself, sitting within a valley ringed by hills and mountains, can be seen as a colosseum where dramas are played out. With the people of the West Coast at its centre, Colosseum will celebrate their uniqueness with an image and sound installation.

From the team that brought you The Rumble in 2016 and Tectonica in 2018, Colosseum completes the trilogy exploring the relationship between industry, landscape and people, bringing to the fore the voices of everyday people who, with grit and determination, live in our remote community.

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.
