A metal mouth digging
A change unforgiving
A dam is constructed
The land is disrupted

In the deep darkness just before dawn, workmen find ancestral bones while excavating for a dam. This ancestor is Wudjang, who longs to be buried the proper way.

An epic-scale contemporary corroboree by Bangarra Dance Theatre and Sydney Theatre Company, Wudjang: Not the Past reveals the power of ancestral stories to reach us through generations. 17 dancers, four musicians and five actors all take the stage in an ambitious performance full of humour and tragedy.

Wudjang reclaims stories from non-Indigenous historians, teaching how to acknowledge, listen and learn from the past. Directed by Stephen Page and cowritten with Alana Valentine, the work uses the Mibinyah language from Page’s Yugambeh country home in Queensland. In every poem chanted, strutted, muttered and sung, dance is alive. This vivid piece of First Nations performance promises to be a benchmark Australian production.

Duration: 1hrs 20mins (no interval). Subject to change.
