EXP22 – NAIDOC Week Celebration: Australian First Nations Song and Dance

20-30 mins, Experienced, New

An exhilarating and visceral film that tells the expansive story of Carriberrie: Indigenous Australian song and dance. Beginning with a stunning passage from the highly acclaimed Sydney Opera House performance, Bennelong, by Australia’s premier Aboriginal dance theatre group Bangarra, actor and performer David Gulpilil welcomes us on a concentric, snake-like journey through time and space. We travel from traditional ceremonial dance and song, towards intrinsically contemporary and modern expressions. Intimate, immersive and breath-taking, this documentary showcases a stunning range of Australian locations and performances from iconic ceremonial traditional dance in Uluru, through to food gathering dances in the rain forest, war songs on the most northern tip of Australia and funeral songs in the Arnhem wetlands before culminating with a highly charged hunting track in the central desert.
