In a divided world, The Fibonacci project aims to unite with a celebration of our cultural similarities and an exploration of what it means to find home.
The Fibonacci Project is a major collaboration between Circus Oz, The 7 Fingers, Emma Serjeant Performance, and artists from The Circus Oz BLAKflip and The 7 Fingers First Nations projects.
TheFibonacci Project is driven by the belief that through artistic expression we can build bridges between cultures and promote a greater sense of solidarity. The objective of the project is the creation of a multidisciplinary show based on collaborations between artists from different cultures. This is a natural fit with BLAKflip’s strategy of building stronger connections, influence and collaboration with the First Peoples of Australia.
The collaboration has grown out of multiple conversations over the years between Circus Oz and Fibonacci in 2014/15, and also between Rob Tannion and Samuel Tétreault while Rob was directing other shows overseas in 2009.
Rob’s appointment as Circus Oz artistic director sparked a new conversation of what could be possible with funding interest from Major Festival Initiative (MFI), and in 2017, a seeding grant enabled Circus Oz to bring Tétreault and Serjeant to Australia for a workshop.
