Burrbgaja Yalirra (Dancing Forwards)

#var:page_name# cover

Country. What is it to belong?

From the creators of Gudirr Gudirr, Cut the Sky and Burning Daylight, Burrbgaja Yalirra (Dancing Forwards) is an evocative triple bill of new solo works exploring reciprocity and our sense of belonging in Australia today.

Curated by Marrugeku’s Artistic Directors Dalisa Pigram and Rachael Swain, each work is a tailored invitation from our leading change makers to experience intercultural exchange.

Though a series of collaborations with Marrugeku Associate Artists Eric Avery, Edwin Lee Mulligan and Miranda Wheen and a team of interdisciplinary artists, Burrbgaja Yalirra is a deeply poetic and vividly kinetic unification of Indigenous and non-Indigenous contemporary cultures across dance, music and storytelling.

Led by visionaries Marrugeku, an unparalleled presence in Australia today dedicated to Indigenous and non-Indigenous Australians working together, join this vibrant retelling and re- awakening of histories, locations and languages.
