Culturally rich and ambitiously original.
World Premiere Season
By Australian Dance Theatre in association with ILBIJERRI Theatre Company
Wiradjuri choreographer and Australian Dance Theatre Artistic Director, Daniel Riley evokes an immensely powerful and personal story of his Great-Great Uncle, Alec "Tracker" Riley.
Alec, a Wiradjuri Elder and Tracker, served the New South Wales Police Force for 40 years, leading numerous high-profile cases. As an Elder of his community he forged a path between the enforced colonial system in which he worked and his Wiradjuri lore. Tracker takes inspiration from his legacy and examines the battles First Nations people have shared for generations.
Weaving together dance, music and text, Tracker invites the audience into an open and transformative ceremonial space. This remarkable story is brought to life by a team of celebrated First Nations creatives, including award-winning playwright Ursula Yovich, co-director Rachael Maza AM, composers James Henry and Gary Watling, visual artist Jonathan Jones, lighting designer Chloe Ogilvie, co-writer and co-dramaturge, Amy Sole and an all-First Nations cast.
Culturally rich and ambitiously original, this multidisciplinary work rethinks how we engage with and experience First Nations storytelling.
