Come to the Corroboree…

Corroboree Festival

CORROBOREE Sydney is a new national festival celebrating Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander culture from November 14.

Leading Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander artists, writers, dancers and musicians will share their talent and stories as part of the 10-day festival.

The program consists of a mix of free and ticketed events, including a ‘pop-up’ Corroboree Lounge at the State Library, a mini film festival, live music by an array of artists, and four new works by the Bangarra dance company at Walsh Bay.

In Dance Clan 3, Bangarra artists Deborah Brown, Yolande Brown, Tara Gower and Jasmin Sheppard will explore Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander story lines through a series of works performed by the entire ensemble of 14 dancers.

“When we perform a story from our hearts and personal experience, you can move people, create change, provoke thought and inspire,”  dancer Jasmin Shepherd explains.

“My desire is to move with our people into the future whilst respecting where we have come from as Indigenous people.”
