A highly political, explosive and energetic dance-theatre work from one of Australia’s most renowned dance companies dedicated to indigenous and non-indigenous exchange.

Throbbing with sadness, anger, joy and resistance, Marrugeku presents a powerful and provocative new work of dance, sound and installation that interrogates a policy of human rights violations. The piece confronts Australia’s shameful fixation with incarceration by connecting outrageous levels of Indigenous prisoners to the indefinite detaining of asylum seekers. Set within “the prison of the mind of Australia” JURRUNGU NGAN-GA (Yawuru for “straight talk”) was partially inspired by “No Friend but the Mountains”, a factual account of incarceration and exile by Kurdish-Iranian writer Behrouz Boochani in collaboration with and translated by Iranian-Australian scholar-activist Omid Tofighian. The book won Australia’s most prestigious literary award. Devised by an outstanding cast who draw on their intersecting yet distinct cultural and communityinformed experiences the work is facilitated through Marrugeku’s hallmark intercultural dance process led by choreographer Dalisa Pigram and director Rachael Swain. Together, they deliver a work of impressive power in which searing truths blend with dark humour, fear, sadness and courage to shine a light on new ways to resist and abolish.
