Murasaki Penguin is an interdisciplinary collaboration between dancer/choreographer Anna Kuroda and sound/multimedia artist David Kirkpatrick. We are based in Western Sydney. Our 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 – performance at the Toyota Choreography Award 2016, Japan – supported by the Australia Japan Foundation (DFAT). Shima – performance within an interactive LED flower installation – iterations presented in Australia (Underbelly Arts Festival 2011), Italy (Palomart Eco Festival 2012) and New Zealand (Wellington LUX 2015). Citylights~街の灯 – performance installation connecting two cities, Sydney and Yokohama, supported by Australia Council for the Arts OYEA, Japan Foundation Sydney and Yokohama City.

Recent works include: Sit – moving image installation commissioned by Casula Powerhouse Arts Centre’s Near x Far Exhibition 2017. Motion Theory – kinetic installation/dance/projection/generative music for Singapore Inside Out Festival 2017 and Singapore Art Week 2019 – collaboration with Kian Peng Ong.
