Having toured for the past two years as an aerialist and acrobat with Circus Oz, Rose Chalks now presents a solo performance piece, bringing together her love of movement and physical expression, spoken word poetry and singing.

Where the Heart Lays reflects on Rose’s identity and cultural journey, rediscovering her First Nations culture and Aboriginal family, having lived overseas for many years until her late teens. Growing up disconnected from culture and country, Rose explores what it’s like to walk the path to affirming an identity beyond easy categorisation, and the experience of being judged against expectations.

Where the Heart Lays is a beguiling work from an exciting young performer.
