Darwin TourFeat Milnjiya

A Gala Performance – Darwin 2019

Thrilling for the whole family! Experience the energy and beauty of dance as we showcase our most loved classical and neoclassical works including The Nutcracker, and Le Corsaire along with contemporary works Les Indomptés and Ballet 101.


The finale of the evening will be a featured work with Darwin’s own NT Dance Company. After premiering in 2018 at West Australian Ballet’s Ballet at the Quarry season, Milnjiya, Milky Way – River of Stars is a ground-breaking collaboration between not only ballet and Aboriginal song and dance, but with Yorta Yorta Soprano Deborah Cheetham AO, who plays the role of the Spirit Caller allowing spirits to release into the next realm. Choreographed by NT Dance Company Artistic Director and Larrakia man Gary Lang, the story was originally expressed by Lang’s Grandfather and created with permission from Yolngu Elders.
