Reverse Anthem


Project — Reverse Anthem

Film directed by Antuong Nguyen 

Key Artists: Kate Daw, Stewart Russell, Jonathan Welch AM, Amrita Hepi, Antuong Nguyen

Commissioned by RISING

Reverse Anthem is a collaboration between artist, composer, filmmaker, choreographer and choir, all driven by a desire to challenge the claims made by Advance Australia Fair to unite us in 2021. Initiated by artists Kate Daw and Stewart Russell in 2016 the work stands up to ingrained inequalities and champions reconciliation through positive action. Learning to sing the anthem back to front and upside down was a challenge, in doing so the collective voices rise in support of everyone on the outside.
