Presented by Adelaide Festival Centre and Spirit Festival
…we carry country in our bodies…
In this timely performance, two female dancers, each living in separate Australian cities and belonging to different Aboriginal countries, contemplate the complexities of a transplanted life.
Drawing on contemporary and traditional dance practices, storytelling, and ritual, Divercity gives shape and form to the women’s connection to the land and culture, sharing cultural diversity through dance. A breathtakingly nuanced yet playful and multi-layered exploration of place, people, landscapes and language.
I have never seen Bundjalung/Yaegl choreographer Mariaa Randall’s work before and I can attest it is affecting, good-humoured, generous and packs a gorgeous, playful punch. Bryan Andy, Blak Critics, NITV
