An Immersive and Interactive Journey through Culture and Language of Aboriginal Australia
Saltbush is a plant that can be found throughout Australia in almost all Aboriginal lands, and it represents a common thread between all the different nations of Australian Indigenous peoples.
This show centres on the journey of two friends and their spiritual guide on foot as they cross Australian landscapes – river country, an urban landscape, desert and the sea. The journey is one of discovering the land, growing an understanding and acknowledging how it challenges or provokes personal journeys.
Children are invited to explore, play and dance with the performers as the landscape unfolds around them, providing a unique immersive experience. Saltbush combines immersive projection, sensors and infrared cameras, which allow the children to participate in the production.
