RUSTIC BEAUTY: Though this image won't be in the exhibition, Virginia Hills says this is a flavour of her work on display on Friday.

The eagerly anticipated show “Red Dust, Black Silk” touches down in Mount Isa on Friday.

The show is a collaboration of two locally creative ladies, Sabella Fuss of Six Foot Circus and photographer Virginia Hills who displays her work as Jemloco Images.

The event on Friday night at North West Gymnastics hall, 15 Flower St and features Sabella’s students’ trapeze act hanging from the black silk while Virginia’s work featuring the iconic red dust will hang from the walls.

The event is part of the Anywhere Theatre Festival which aims to take performance art out of traditional theatre spaces and into more novel surrounds.

Festival organisers contacted Ms Fuss about doing something in Mount Isa.

“We do aerial silk circus, an aerial silk is a long piece of fabric hanging from the ceiling or when outdoors maybe a tree,” Ms Fuss said.

“My students will be doing performances throughout the evening for people who come at different times.

Ms Hills said Ms Fuss loved her work.

“She wanted to do her thing while I do my thing,” Virginia said.

The two ladies collaborated on a photo shoot outside Mount Isa though now pregnant, Sabella won’t be performing on Friday.

The event is free from 7pm, but bookings are appreciated. Go to http://anywheretheatre.com/listings/red-dust/

There is a bar on the night with proceeds going to North West Gymnastics.
