Artback NT is the gateway to sharing the rich cultures, stories and art of the Northern Territory with Australia and the rest of the world. We develop and produce new, innovative and stimulating works.
‘The Other Side of Me’ is a poignant contemporary dance work based on a collection of letters and poems written by a man born in Kalkarindji (NT) in 1966, who was adopted by an English family and raised in Cornwall (United Kingdom). The production explores identity, the criminal justice system and psychological health.
A new intercultural work in music, song and dance, “Bayini’s Journey”, interweaves Gumatj Yolŋu’s stories about the first visitors to Arnhem Land. A collaboration between artists from the First Nations of Arnhem Land and Taiwan.
Three emerging creators are supported as part of a mentoring and professional development program for people with disabilities in the theatrical production “Trash Magic”, a tale about family, nature and the MESS!
