 'The Tempest' is an experimental dance video collaboration between video artist Tim Parish and sound artist/performer Lulu Madill aka Buttons Touching. It is an interpretation of the traditional raindance, and a choreography inspired by the element of wind.

 Utilising shots from Beijing and Darwin 'The Tempest' was predominantly filmed on the windiest day in Melbourne in 2008 when record breaking gales of wind toppled trees, and blew people from their bikes. 

The Tempest was winner of Best Soundtrack at the Fistful of Films Gala Awards as part of the Darwin Festival 2008.
