Merrigong Theatre Company presents

9 Aug 2023 to 12 Aug 2023

Merrigong Theatre Company presents SILENCE, a thrilling new work from acclaimed First Nations contemporary dance company, Karul Projects, from 9 to 12 August.

Choreographed and written by proud Minjungbal-Yugambeh, Wiradjuri and Ni-Vanuatu man, Thomas E.S. Kelly, SILENCE pulls unresolved conversations about Treaty from under the rug and slams them back on the table.

An entry point to the political environment Australia finds itself in, SILENCE is a powerful contemporary dance performance featuring a complex musical score, punctuated by dynamic live percussion, exploring past, present, alternate realities and dreamscapes. 

Both a celebration of First Nations triumphs, as well as a searing commentary on Australian Nationhood, SILENCE explores what a 250 plus year-long denial of meaningful listening to First Nations people has done to the psyche of the people and land.

As Australia prepares to vote on The Voice to Parliament, this dynamic and exciting show is not to be missed.
