AbstractHistoryArchive Description

Carriberrie is a multi-platform immersive journey across Australia that celebrates 'the depth and diversity of indigenous dance and song from the traditional to the contemporary.'

'From the heart of the country at Uluru, actor and performer David Gulpilil welcomes us to a journey through time and space across Australia, from traditional ceremonial dance and song, towards intrinsically contemporary and modern expressions.'

With 156 dancers, 9 cultural groups, and 35 performances, this film 'tells the expansive story of Carriberrie: Indigenous Australian song and dance. Beginning with a stunning passage from the highly acclaimed Sydney Opera House peformance, Bennelong, by Australia's premier Aboriginal dance theatre group Bangarra, actor and performer David Gulpilil welcomes us on a concentric, snake-like journey through time and space.

'[They] travel from traditional ceremonial dance and song, towards intrinsically contemporary and modern expressions. Intimate, immersive and breath-taking, this documentary showcases a stunning range of Australian locations and performances from iconic ceremonial traditional dance in Uluru, through to food gathering dances in the rain forrest, war songs on the most northern tip of Australia and funeral songs in the Arnhem wetlands before culminating with a highly charged hunting track in the central desert.'
