1 June
Location informationNFSA Theatrette
Event cost$10, recommended for ages 10 and up

To celebrate National Reconciliation Week, watch a short documentary on the big screen and learn about the role of song and dance in Indigenous culture.

Carriberrie is a 14-minute journey around the country, narrated by actors David Gulpilil and Jack Charles. The groundbreaking film, shot in 360-degrees, introduces you to nine cultural groups performing traditional and contemporary dances filmed on country.

You’ll travel to Uluru to experience ceremonial dances, to the island of Moa to see traditional dances of the Torres Strait, and to the stage of the Sydney Opera House as Bangarra perform Bennelong.

Following the screening, meet Carriberrie dancer Delta Kay, an Arakwal Bumberin Bundjalung woman who is passionate about sharing culture and protecting country. Delta and songwoman Belle are travelling to Canberra from Byron Bay to perform traditional dances live on stage and teach the audience some moves too!

It’s a unique opportunity to celebrate Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander song and dance and learn about our shared histories, cultures and achievements.

Recommended for adults and children aged 6 and up.
