NAISDA DANCE COLLEGE presents MESSENGER
The Art House, Wyong | Wednesday 4-Saturday 7 July 2018
Inspired by the 2018 NAIDOC theme ‘Because of her, we can!’ NAISDA acknowledges our mothers, grandmothers, aunties, sisters and daughters as an important presence in our lives with its performance season of Messenger.
Their stories of struggle and achievement, and their unwavering fight for a better existence, empowers us to not only look clearly to our past, but also to be inspired by a dynamic and vibrant future.
Messenger speaks to the force of the female spirit as she guides us to come together as a community to say, “Our Art is powerful, our identity is strong and we affirm our commitment to a culturally rich and diverse society for future generations.”
– Frances Rings, Head of Creative Studies, NAISDA
Experience the captivating cultural Yolngu dances from the Datiwuy Clan in North East Arnhem Land, as well as the remount of contemporary works by leading Indigenous choreographers Sani Townson and Frances Rings from NAISDA’s critically acclaimed 2017 production Restoration.
NAISDA’s talented Developing Artists will also be presenting choreographic pieces recognising and paying tribute to the females in their lives.
Produced by Jasmine Gulash, Artistic Producer, NAISDA
