Event Details

Featuring text by Alexis Wright
Black Arm Band Music of the Australian Indigenous experience

An unforgettable performance to move the heart and lift the spirit, dirtsong is inspired by the words of Miles Franklin Award winner Alexis Wright.

A powerful musical journey through Australia’s cultural heartland. Dirtsong is set against a backdrop of stunning moving imagery and text, featuring unforgettable songs performed in 11 different Aboriginal languages from some of the most extraordinary performers in the land.

Showcasing and celebrating the very best of Australian Aboriginal music, experience and identity, Black Arm Band is a collective of renowned Indigenous singers, musicians, performers and actors.

Black Arm Band astounded Tasmania with its sold-out performances of Hidden Republic at Ten Days 2011. Now, this powerhouse company of Indigenous music and theatre return with dirtsong.
