Horizon

 

There is a place between sea and sky – a sacred realm, where the sun rises and falls and the light is new.

From two of the world’s great First Nations comes a brand-new work: Horizon. Some call it a feeling, some call it the mother spirit. It’s the place where sea meets sky, the horizon we all look to, the compass that guides us home.

In Bangarra Dance Theatre’s first main stage cross-cultural collaboration, leading Māori choreographer Moss Te Ururangi Patterson joins beloved Bangarra alumna Deborah Brown. Together they guide the award-winning ensemble in stories that honour their mother countries and the spirit that calls them home.

Brown is a proud descendent of the Wakaid Clan and Meriam people in the Torres Strait, with heritage from far across the seas in Scotland. She carries strength and resilience from her ancestors. Patterson was born in Turangi near Lake Taupō, and describes the sense of home as something alive, that he carries like a beating heart.

To open the program, Saibailayg (Saibai Islander) Sani Townson expands his acclaimed work Kulka, debuted in Dance Clan in 2023, to make a thrilling opening piece paying homage to Sani’s grandfather and his Torres Strait heritage.

Come explore the cultural forces that bind us together, across oceans and eons. Experience the resilience of the First Peoples of the Oceania region, that extends across the continent now known as Australia, the Torres Strait Islands and Aotearoa, our southern neighbour.

Horizon is a double bill opening with Kulka by Bangarra alum Sani Townson, followed by the primary piece, The Light Inside, choreographed by Bangarra alum Deborah Brown and Māori choreographer and Arts Laureate Moss Te Ururangi Patterson.

EVENT DETAILS:

  • When – 8-17 of August
  • Where – QPAC
  • Price – from $59

ANDY GOLLEDGE BAND – ‘YOUNG, DUMB & WILD’ ALBUM TOUR

 

Prepare yourself for an unforgettable musical adventure as the Andy Golledge Band embarks on their ‘Young, Dumb & Wild’ Album Tour 2024. Slated for release on April 19, 2024, the album captures the essence of life’s transitions, celebrating the beauty of ageing, the excitement of new love, and the thrill of exploring new environments.

The title track, ‘Young, Dumb & Wild,’ stands out as a powerful anthem that transcends superficial notions of youth to delve into the core of creative freedom. This single follows the earlier release of ‘Country Band’ in late 2023, a lively road trip anthem that celebrates the many forms of love in various relationships. Together, the tracks weave a seamless narrative, encapsulating the highs and lows of life’s twists and turns.

Andy Golledge, a prominent figure in the Australian alt-country scene, aims to deliver a mature and cohesive experience with this album, showcasing his unique ‘Alt-Country-esque Dad Rock’ style. Following the success of his debut album, ‘Strength of a Queen,’ which won ‘Best Independent Country Album/EP’ at the AIR Awards 2023, Andy Golledge continues to make waves in the music scene. His debut album charted impressively on ARIA’s Top Vinyl Albums and Australian Country Albums, earning nominations at the ARIA Awards 2022 and CMAA Golden Guitar Awards 2023.
