The story of Australia is one of demolition: of ancestral lands turned upside down into goldfields, farms, freeways and houses. DEMOLISH takes us inside the heart of cataclysmic change, shining a new light on progress in our landscape. A moving, theatrical spectacle performed with dancers, musicians, projection artists, visual theatre artists, local community members and heavy machinery.
November 17 • Rosalind Park, Bendigo
YAPENYA means to dance, to sing; ceremony in Dja Dja Wurrung language.
Through bloodline and kinship, the people belonging to the heart of Victoria are the Dja Dja Wurrung. Their Country is a cultural landscape that is more than just tangible objects; imprinted in it are the Dreaming stories, law, totemic relationships, songs, ceremonies and ancestral spirits, which give it life and value.
YAPENYA is a new performance ceremony presenting new songs and new dances by Dja Dja Wurrung, the Traditional Owners of the heart of Victoria.
