'Two stories from two ancient cultures together under the stars - an Aboriginal Wongi Dreaming tale and an Ancient Greek Myth - explored through the medium of contemporary dance.'
'Discover how our shared stories connect us and make us strong. Journey into two tales which encourage you to see through and beyond the stories themselves and into a world that unites all Australians regardless of cultural origin.'
'Diaphanous: seeing through and beyond presents the traditional Wongi Seven Sisters story alongside the Greek Orion story, both arising from the astrological constellation which is visible from both the Northern and Southern Hemispheres at night.' (Source: Ochre Contemporary Dance Company website)
