Contact Murasaki Penguin

Murasaki Penguin is an interdisciplinary collaboration between dancer/choreographer Anna Kuroda and sound and multimedia artist David Kirkpatrick. Their work crosses cultures and the boundaries of dance, sound, video, electronics and large scale installation – with a focus on interactivity and live performance.

Highlights include Window at the Toyota Choreography Award 2016 in Japan and Shima series works in Australia, Italy and Wellington. Murasaki Penguin projects have received Australia Japan Foundation (DFAT), Australia Council OYEA, Wellington LUX and Yokohama City funding and been shortlisted for an ArtsHub Innovation Award.
