Saltbush Spreading Culture to Colac Schools

20170831_113319

 

Saltbush is an immersive work developed for young people, which takes audiences on an interactive journey through Aboriginal culture, celebrated through dance, music, song and stories. The story centres around two friends from different backgrounds and their journey through the culture and landscape of Aboriginal Australia. As they cross the country on foot, they cross diverse landscapes – river country, an urban landscape, the desert and the sea. With the help of a narrator, or spiritual guide, they discover and learn to better understand the land.
