Message from Allara and Olenka:
Hello supporters of Allara & Olenka,
It is with heavy hearts that we are announcing the cancellation of our debut collaborative project, “Rekindled Systems”. Due to the growing public health concerns with covid-19 Northcote Social Club has notified us that they will be cancelling all events for the month of March, including our show.
Allara & Olenka have full intention of debuting this show in the future. The time to reconvene with community will come back, and when it does, we will be here to welcome you.
Northcote Social Club will be refunding all ticket holders. We thank you for your patience as they process these refunds over the coming weeks.
In the meantime, keep your eyes peeled on Allara & Olenka’s websites and social media accounts for new music coming out. We would like to share with you a taste of what was to come.
The world at large is in the midst of a major shift. We are being asked to self-isolate, to focus our attention inward. Healing is needed. More than ever, the world needs the medicine of our poets, singers, dancers and artists. Artists! We are calling upon you now to bring your creation into this world and share it with friends, neighbours and strangers. The medicine that is sharing, (from a distance), is what will feed our souls and hearts in a time of solitude.
With gratitude and love,
Allara & Olenka
THIS SHOW IS STRICTLY 18+
PLEASE NOTE THIS SHOW WILL BE AUSLAN INTERPRETED
Rekindled Systems is an unlikely collaboration between Yorta Yorta artist Allara and Ukrainian Canadian artist Olenka Toroshenko.
Employing skillful storytelling these two women, for their duo show debut, weave a multidisciplinary and multicultural narrative using a sweet tangle of double bass, looped tones, song, spoken word poetry and dance.
With direct intent, Olenka and Allara call upon the guidance of their ancestors to navigate the troubling reality of the state of our current cultural paradigm and planet. “Rekindled Systems” is a ballad for the healing of the earth—an invitation to proceed with living a life of meaning and consequence through art and expression.
