Barangaroo Reserve - Sand Song, 10am and 2.30pm, $20
This vibrant Aboriginal contemporary performance weaves together the ritual of fire, dance, art and song to tell the story of ‘cheeky Brolga stealing Emu’s egg’ which is the Gammilleroi Dreaming story of the ‘First Sun’ – the first time the sun’s light shone on Australia.
During a 30-minute hands-on workshop, children meet the performers, learn the Emu dance and ‘paint up’ their dream on a glass ‘dream holder’ that becomes part of the SAND SONG set. The children get to keep their dream holder after the show.
The workshop is followed by a mesmerising and humorous 40-minute performance exploring the power of light, dreams and fire and featuring a fusion of contemporary and traditional music, with live singing, didgeridoo and clap sticks. The story represents the dawn of understanding, growing up and gaining wisdom.
Created by visual artist Walbira Murray and director Elena Vereker, and produced by Insite Arts. Insite Arts is assisted by the Australian Government through the Australia Council, its arts funding and advisory body.
