"Nyapanyapa Yunupingu is an inspiration. She is a proud Yolngu woman from the Gumatj clan of North East Arnhem Land, a strong figure in her community who creates her art simply because it’s in her blood." - Stephen Page
Through dance, Nyapanyapa illuminates and celebrates the artist's incredible creative gifts and brings her joyful work to a new audience.
This production features the First Nations language Yolngu Matha (North East Arnhem Land).
