This intimate solo dance and video work by Aboriginal artist Dalisa Pigram, lights a path from a broken past through a fragile present and on to a future still in the making. It considers the legacy of Australia’s history for Aboriginal people today.
Gudirr Gudirr calls a warning to a community facing massive industrialisation on traditional lands, loss of language and major gaps between Indigenous and non-Indigenous wellbeing.
This piece was created in collaboration with choreographer Koen Augustijnen (les ballets C de la B).
