This was an Australian and Italian production created by Compagnia TPO.
I attended this on Saturday 2nd April 2011 at ArtPlay. This was my second time attending this performance.
It involved special lighting effects featuring beautiful Aboriginal paintings on a carpet and dancers performed to it in time along with expressive music and sound effects while telling a story.
It was also very interactive as audience members were invited to join in at different times.
My favourite part was when there was a big blue butterfly, which looked like it was being controlled by the actors as they moved their hands around.
I also liked it when I was called onto the carpet to dance. I felt nervous when I went up there but I didn’t feel so nervous when Tager joined me. Tager and I danced on Lily pads and we went under a sheet that had projected stars on it. It was all fun, dancing.
To me, Salt Bush means ….
A U S T R A L I A and U S – we’re all from different places, but have this great land in common. 🙂
I recommend people go to see this at ArtPlay– school groups can attend also. Best for ages 5yrs+ as there is a small educational talk as well at the start about Aboriginal history.
