Watch the performance opening:
The ground beneath us has a musical language of its own. It communicates eons of transmutation and formation. This abstract musical offering serves as a musical acknowledgment to country.
Ancient Waters unfolds in two parts namely Rain Song and Storm Bringer. Minimalist raindrops merge into a simple rain song that gradually crescendos into a pulsating storm.
We pay our respects to the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander ancestors of this land, their spirits and their legacy. The foundations laid by these ancestors – our First Nations Peoples – gives strength, inspiration and courage to current and future generations, both Indigenous and non-Indigenous, towards creating a better Queensland.
