UNIQUE, INFECTIOUS, HIGH-ENERGY... LIKE A CONFETTI CANNON POINT BLANK TO THE HEART.
Indigenous dance sensations and landmark dance/theatre company that took the world by storm present their internationally acclaimed smash hit production. Unique, infectious, high-energy… like a confetti cannon point blank to the heart. Djuki Mala wow audiences with a spectacular fusion of traditional dance, pop-culture and storytelling that is a marvel of timing, comedy and clowning with a hefty dose of heart and soul!
Djuki Mala performer Baykali Ganambarr says: “Our show tells the genesis of Djuki Mala, in a way that challenges the western anthropological view of First Nations culture. We do this with our humor, our dance, our story and our culture. It’s alive, it’s living, breathing, ever changing and evolving. Rooted in over 75,000 years of ancestral knowledge. We take our culture out of the museum and place it very firmly in the 21st century – with a bit of circus and bling!”
