Saturday 16 Sep, 7:30pm
Approximately 1hr 30m
The Journey Down is an animated and vibrant celebration of dance, song, projections and otherworldly sound coming together to transform an old bush wreck into a travelling canvas of story and culture.
The Journey Down features Warnarral Ngoorrngoorrool, an old bush wreck that has been transformed into a sonic sculpture. Warnarral Ngoorrngoorrool is accompanied by powerful performances by Miriwoong and Gija songmen and dancers Chris Griffiths and Andrew Daylight, Yamatji didjeridu virtuoso Mark Atkins with leading Australian musicians Aviva Endean, Tristen Parr and Vanessa Tomlinson, interwoven with animation and video design from Sohan Ariel Hayes.
The Journey Down will transport audiences to new worlds in a celebration of intercultural collaboration, the vibrancy of our regional communities and the stories and sounds that connect us.
