WEREDINGO

Karul Projects

Presented by Metro Arts and Brisbane Festival

Come in, grab a biccy and a cuppa. All shapes and kinds are accepted here, this is a safe space – but not your usual support group.

Weredingo offers a fictional world where shapeshifters are hunted for their duality, meeting in secret to safely shift into their animal forms and congregate with their feathered or furry brethren.

This powerful new dance-theatre work combines storytelling with Karul Project’s distinctive contemporary dance style and a dash of humour.  Led by a First Nations team, this story is brought to life alongside beautiful animations by Jake Duczynski of Studio Hackett, and projection by Wirrim Studios.

 

If you’re ready to join the support group, wear your animal loud and proud. Whether fur, fleece or feathers, beaks, claws or tails – all animals and outfits are welcome!
