A trilogy of short works curated by Marrugeku’s Artistic Directors Dalisa Pigram and Rachael Swain that trace histories of migration, relocation, cultural adaption and survival and draws on the power of ancestral presence to remember the future. Burrbgaja Yalirra 2 has a focus on fostering new choreographic approaches by combining traditional and contemporary dance frameworks in new collaborations between artists from specific northern Australian communities and those of maritime nations of South east Asia and Melanesia.

This project is part of the Carriageworks In Development Program.

Presented by Marrugeku at Carriageworks.

Burrbgaja Yalirra 2 is commissioned by Carriageworks, Perth Institute of Contemporary Art and Centre Culturel Tjibaou Nouméa.

Burrbgaja Yalirra 2 is currently in development with support from the Australian Government through the Regional Arts Fund and the Seaborn, Broughton & Walford Foundation.
