A Kimberley story that speaks to everyone
Bunuba Cultural Enterprises partnered with the Sydney Conservatorium of Music to present a triumphant one off performance of Jandamarra Sing for the Country at the Sydney Town Hall on 18 October 2019.
A truly extraordinary piece of dramatic storytelling for our time and place … The action in this masterful work ranged all over the stage and into the orchestra, like a mini-opera. From the bullroarers calling us to attention at the opening to the final reflective song passed from choir to choir … Everything about this performance had me glued to the edge of my seat – the epic tale, the performances, the libretto, the musicians, choirs and soloists. Of course it received a well-deserved exuberant standing ovation.
You can see the show in full here.
BCE’s appearance in Sydney was supported by the Australia Council for the Arts
