Set to a beautiful and haunting score composed by David Page and Steve Francis, Spirit is a lush and contemporary celebration of beauty, ritual and music. From the last breath of sunset to the first finger-light of dawn, the audience enters a mysterious and secret space to witness nature’s sacred poetry.
Featuring Kathy Balngayngu Marika, a traditional elder from North East Arnhem, Spirit weaves storytelling, dance, theatre and music into an unforgettable theatrical experience.
First performed in 2004, Spirit has had many iterations over the last 15 years. This special work speaks of our unique country and the First Nations' cultures that have worked with it and from it, in reciprocation, for millennia.
To discover the gradual evolution of Spirit, you might begin by perusing the numerous programs from over the years.
