'Twist and loop' describes both a technique used by women in Papua New Guinea to create knotted fabrics, and movements they perform as part of choreographed, ceremonial dance sequences.

In this special performance, 'No. 1 Neighbour' artist Julia Mage'au Gray led performance group Sunameke in a response to a billum wear collection designed by Florence Jaukae Kamel for 'No 1 Neighbour'.

‘No.1 Neighbour: Art in Papua New Guinea 1966–2016’ is supported by the Gordon Darling Foundation and through the Australian Government through the Australian Cultural Diplomacy Grants Program of the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade.
