Presented by the Adelaide Festival Centre

For many thousands of years, Australia’s First Nations people have been telling stories through dance, song, paintings, carvings, tools and spoken word – often around the campfire. These stories speak to the geography, value systems and cultural protocols of the country and people they belong to. But as we move toward more urban lifestyles, how will traditional storytelling be preserved?

Take your seat around the proverbial campfire and hear from local storytellers Uncle Mickey O’Brien, Aunty Stephanie Gollan and Ema Bovoro. Recorded and presented online, this important new work provides a special opportunity for young people to be immersed in these stories and share in Indigenous culture and language.

Approx. Running Time: 16 minutes

Performance Dates:
August 4 to September 25
