Created and choreographed by Ghenoa Gela
Created by award-winning Torres Strait Islander artist Ghenoa Gela, Mura Buai is a thoughtful new work infused with a sense of the past that explores strength, tradition and identity.
Produced by Australian dance theatre company Force Majeure and co-directed by Danielle Micich, Mura Buai features a contingent of Torres Strait Islander performers in collaboration with local Indigenous performers from Turtle Island, resulting in a captivating work that uses stories and movement inspired by traditional practices, contemporary dance and sport.
From this playful choreographed-yet-improvised environment come relationships and meaning that shift and change depending on your perspective.
Enjoy this free event from one of Australia’s most promising choreographers!
