We pay our respects and offer our gratitude to Elders past and present, and to those emerging leaders in the community. We acknowledge all Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people and the importance of their care and continued connection to culture, community and Country.

Always was, always will be.

Burrbgaja Yalirra 1

Burrbgaja Yalirra 1

From the creators of Gudirr Gudirr, Cut the Sky, and Burning Daylight, Burrbgaja Yalirra (Dancing Forwards) is an evocative triple bill of new solo works.

Curated by Marrugeku’s Artistic Directors Dalisa Pigram and Rachael Swain, each work is an invitation from our leading change-makers to experience intercultural exchange.

Through a series of collaborations with Marrugeku Associate Artists Eric Avery, Edwin Lee Mulligan, and Miranda Wheen and a team of interdisciplinary artists, Ngarlimbah, Dancing with Strangers, and Miranda form a deeply poetic and vivid engagement of Indigenous and non-Indigenous cultures across dance, music, and storytelling. Learn more about each triple bill performance.

Led by visionaries Marrugeku, an unparalleled presence in Australia today dedicated to Indigenous and non-Indigenous Australians working together, join this vibrant retelling and re-awakening of histories, locations, and languages.
