Yuldea awakens the earth and
sky worlds to tell the story of the Aṉangu people of the
Great Victorian Desert.
This major new work explores the moment
traditional life collided with the industrial ambition of a growing nation. In
1917, the two halves of the Transcontinental Railway met at the precious water
soak on the edge of the Nullarbor, Yuldi Kapi.
Yuldea features original music
by Leon Rodgers with featured songs by multi-award-winning duo Electric Fields.
Designers Elizabeth Gadsby (Set), Jennifer Irwin (Costume) and Karen Norris
(Lighting) create a desert world on stage.
Yuldea is an embodiment
of harmony between story, vision and being. - Arts Hub
