BANGARRA DANCE THEATRE
At Yuldea, stories hover in the sky. The stars reveal a divine Songline, stretching between earth and sky.
Yuldea awakens the earth and sky worlds to tell the story of the Aṉangu people of the Great Victorian Desert.
This major new work by Bangarra Dance Theatre explores the moment traditional life collided with the industrial ambition of a growing nation. In 1917, the two halves of the Transcontinental Railway met at the precious water soak on the edge of the Nullarbor, Yuldi Kapi.
Great metal serpents scarred the landscape, draining all water from the sacred soak. Then came the black mist of the atomic testing at Maralinga, forcing the Aṉangu people to leave their desert homelands where they had lived for millennia.
***** "Yuldea is an embodiment of harmony between story, vision and being" - ARTSHUB
**** "Yuldea is so fresh and uninhibited it almost bursts off the stage" - Sydney Morning Herald
Now memories lay scattered, like the Aṉangu people, displaced from their home. Remnants of colonial progress are swallowed by sand. But the Aṉangu endure, determined to keep strong their knowledge systems of land and sky, honouring their eternal bonds of kinship between people and place.
Recommended for ages 10+
