An intimate solo dance and video work performed by Dalisa Pigram, daughter of Broome, Gudirr Gudirr is the breathtakingly choreographed piece that poses the question: what does it take to decolonise Aboriginal people’s minds, to unlock doors, and to face cultural change?

By turns hesitant, restless, resilient, and angry, Gudirr Gudirr considers the legacy of Australia’s history for Aboriginal people in northwest Australia today. The production lights a path from a broken past through a fragile present and on to a future still in the making.

Gudirr Gudirr was co-commissioned by the City of Melbourne through Arts House, Theater ImPfalzbau, Ludwigshafenm Germany and Les Théâtres de la Ville de Luxembourg. Gudirr Gudirr was funded by the Australian Government through the Australia Council, its arts funding and advisory body, the Western Australian Department of Culture and the Arts and the Shire of Broome, Western Australia.
