Looking for something new to do with the kids? Check out Sand Song, a fun and uplifting Aboriginal theatre performance and workshop coming to Barangaroo's Cutaway space in Sydney on October 3-8.
The vibrant show weaves together the ritual of fire, dance, art and song to tell the story of ‘cheeky Brolga stealing Emu’s egg’, symbolising the first time the sun’s light shone on Australia.
It's interactive and entertaining for kids
It starts with a 30-minute hands-on workshop, where children get to meet the performers, learn the Emu dance and ‘paint up’ their dream on a glass ‘dream holder’ that becomes part of the show’s set. They even get to keep it after the show.
That’s followed by an amazing live performance featuring a fusion of contemporary and traditional music, with live singing, didgeridoo and clap sticks. We can’t wait to see it.
