5 Blackwood St,
It’s Karaoke night, Broome style, where country meets hip hop meets Japanese love song. Closing time and they take it outside. A lone cowboy blows into town,stirring its ghosts for a long and wild night, as past and present dance it out on the street.
This is explosive yet haunting dance theatre from Broome-based Indigenous and intercultural company Marrugeku;choreographed by Serge Aime Coulibaly (ex Les Ballets C de la B) and Marrugeku’s Dalisa Pigram, featuring film by Warwick Thornton (Samson & Delilah), with a cast including Trevor Jamieson (Ngapartji Ngapartji) & Sermsah Bin Saad (So You Think You Can Dance).
