Hailing from the Galiwin’ku community in North East Arnhem Land, Djuki Mala, otherwise known as the Chooky Dancers, fuse traditional Aboriginal and contemporary dance, comedy and clowning with athleticism.
They’re appeared at festivals in China, Taiwan, Solomon Island and Canada, so it’s only logical that their next stop is the Gold Coast. It’s traditional dance meets pop culture. And it’s on at the Arts Centre Gold Coast on Tuesday 11 March.
Dewayne Everettsmith, who’s shared stages with the likes of Geoffrey Gurrumul Yunupingu, Black Arm Band and Paul Kelly will warm up the crowd. Get all the details at artscentregc.com.au. Arrive early for a showcase of Indigenous art and music on the Terrace.
