Description (from venue/promoter's website):
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).
" Gudirr Gudirr is a truly timely work that should be seen widely"
- RealTime
This performance is a UK premiere

There will be a pre-showtalk by Artistic Director Rachael Swain on Thu 31 Oct at 5.30pm
