Mirramu Dance Company presented a short suite of dances from  Morning Star, which follows one sacred song line of the Yolngu people from the Rirrtjingu Dhanbul clan of North East Arnhem Land. This Morning Star story is a significant story teaching us about our humanity, our codes of living and the importance of our relationship to the natural world.

Between sunset and sunrise powerful songs and dances of ancestral spirits are danced and sung in an age-old ceremony, which affirms the complex and intricate cycle of birth, life, death and rebirth.

  • The contemporary Brolga dance
  • The dancing Brolga bird has an important transformative role in this epic story.
  • Contemporary dances of Makuna (the seagull) and Banumbirr (the Morning Star)
