In August, the Australia Council announced the latest recipients of residencies offered in partnership with UKARIA. Composer Fiona Hill will be in residence later this year, joined by collaborators including director/choreographer Sue Healey (Australia Council Award for Dance 2021), and Churchill Fellow and internationally renowned dancer/choreographer Christopher Hill. They will use the residency to work on a site-specific short film.

'The film will draw on our response to being in and resonating with a specific place, in this instance the grounds and buildings of UKARIA,' Fiona Hill said. 'We will also collaborate with the acclaimed Seraphim Trio, workshopping and recording the score for the film during the residency.'

Composer Paul Castles will use his residency to develop a new work of immersive music-driven multi sensory theatre being created for Light Adelaide. He will be joined by an interdisciplinary team of collaborators including pianist and creative producer Nicole Brady, sound designer and engineer Bob Scott, several musicians, writer Victoria Saxton, experiential designer Meg Wilson, chef Brandon Wessels, technical director Ryan Grobbins, and director of photography Alex Smith.

'We'll be exploring and recording music, capturing 360-degree audio and visuals from the surrounding South Australian landscapes, and preparing an initial workshop presentation to be shared at UKARIA,' Paul Castles said.

Residents will spend ten days at UKARIA, with exclusive access to the Cultural Centre and Twin Peaks accomodation facility at the Mount Barker Summit.
