Gudirr Gudirr, the call of the bird

Contemporary dance

On the occasion of the exhibition "Songlines: Tracking the Seven Sisters", the museum invites you to discover contemporary Australian creation.


Marrugeku Company
Dalisa Pigram and Koen Augustijnen

A solo work by Dalisa Pigram, choreographer, dancer and co-founder of the Marrugeku company, Gudirr Gudirr traces a path between a broken past and a fragile present, against the backdrop of a future still in the making.

Gudirr Gudirr is a warning cry, the call the guwayi bird makes when the tide turns: to miss the call is to drown. With rare presence, Dalisa Pigram creates an intimate and intense solo, mixing dance and video, inhabited by hesitation, impatience, resilience and anger. The production considers the legacy of Australia’s history for the Aboriginal people of northwestern Australia today and asks: how can we decolonise indigenous minds, unlock the doors and face cultural change?

Recommended for ages 12 and up (some scenes may offend young audiences).
