Excavations was produced by Western Edge in collaboration with culturally diverse young women from across the western suburbs over a 15 week period from February to June. The performance was a series of vignettes based on female characters and legends throughout history including Marilyn Monroe, Marlena Dietrich, Lola Montez, Billy Holiday, Little Red Riding Hood, Cinderella, Alice in Wonderland and Annette Kellerman, with each scene having it's own flavour and style combining to form a beautiful whole reflecting on the status of women. The performances also included recreated interviews with local practising artists Angela Costi, Karen Hadfield and Yumi Umimare.
