Highway of Lost Hearts
28 July 2014, 1:30pm-4:00pm
Location: Barossa Arts & Convention Centre, Magnolia Road, Tanunda, SA 5352
A woman. A dog. A campervan. And 4,500klm of wide open road.
Mot wakes up one morning to find that her heart is missing from her chest. She can breathe; she has a pulse - but she feels… nothing.
So. She decides to go and look for it. With her Dog enlisted as co-pilot, Mot heads down the Highway of Lost Hearts: into the deepest core of the Australian outback - navigating red dirt landscapes, fire and flood, vast salt lakes, age-old mountains and murky waters filled with lost souls. And the further Mot drives into the deepest heart of Australia, the more she realises that everyone around her also seem to be missing some vital part of themselves.
An allegory for a country that has lost its heart, Highway of Lost Hearts leaves you pondering the question: when?
