Bulnuruwanha (Taking Flight) – Indigenous Dance On-Demand Workshop (Early Stage 1, Stage 1, Stage 2)
In this on-demand resource, watch contemporary Indigenous dances exploring the Wiradjuri Dreamtime stories of the Magpie, Kookaburra and other birds and play fun and interactive games & activities
Explore the Wiradjuri Dreamtime through dance.
Bulnuruwanha is a contemporary Indigenous dance work exploring the Wiradjuri Dreamtime stories of the Magpie, Willy Wagtail, Kookaburra and Cockatoo and their roles in the creation of the land. Developed by recent NAISDA graduate, new Bangarra member, and First Nations choreographer and dancer Emily Flannery, Bulnuruwanha takes students through four different dances inspired by the birds and animals of the NSW Central Coast.
In this digital resource, filmed at NAISDA in the NSW Central, students will watch and learn parts of the choreography and respond with reflections on animals and birds from their own country. The on-demand workshop also involves fun and engaging games and activities to do together as a class.
Bulnuruwanha is a DirtyFeet production commissioned by the Sydney Opera House, as part of New Work Now, enabled by The Wolanski Foundation.
