A North American premiere. In Broome, Western Australia, Asian, Australian-Indigenous and Western settler cultures collide, creating a remarkable intercultural expression – and Marrugeku is at the forefront of this emergence. “Gudirr Gudirr” is the guwayi bird’s warning that the tide is turning; if you miss the call, you drown. Threading the physicality of contemporary dance through her vision of the rapid change affecting her land, its people and her own Asian-Indigenous identity, Marrugeku’s Dalisa Pigram shares the memories and experiences of indigenous culture through this visually spectacular performance.
