Djuki Mala ready to thrill audiences
Audiences can expect to be wowed as indigenous dance sensation Djuki Mala perform their unique fusion of traditional dance, pop-culture and storytelling at BREC this October.
By combining dance with multimedia, the show tells the story of Djuki Mala, giving audiences the opportunity to experience some of the more intimate moments and turning points that have shaped the group.
“We kind of keep expecting this show will slow down, but the more people we see, the more people want to see it, and the demand keeps growing for us,” says Djuki Mala Artistic Director, Joshua Bond.
The group’s appearances have electrified audiences at major festivals and events worldwide, with multiple nominations and awards alongside huge media interest.
Djuki Mala have been thrilling audiences with reinterpretations of popular culture and traditional dances in a way that honours their Yolngu culture and their contemporary experience as young people since their 2007 clip of ‘Zorba the Greek’ went viral.
The video shows a group of 10 young men from Elcho Island in Arnhem Land, dancing on a basketball court. Shot on a mobile phone and uploaded to YouTube, the video has since attracted more than 2.9m views.
Djuki Mala will perform at BREC on Friday 9th October 2020 at 6.30pm.
