'Djurra is NORPA’s breathtaking new dance theatre work directed by Kirk Page and inspired by a Bundjalung creation story. Woven from the story veins of a timeless culture and contemporary experience, Djurra is told through a series of intertwined vignettes. Using strong physicality, powerful monologues in First Nation voice and striking imagery, Djurra is an unforgettable experience that will resonate with audiences long after they leave the theatre.'
