Jurrungu Ngan-ga - Marrugeku | Darwin Festival
Marrugeku confronts Australia’s shameful fixation with incarceration in a powerful and provocative new dance work.
Challenging, joyful and deeply affecting, Jurrungu Ngan-ga – literally ‘Straight Talk’, tears down walls and builds bridges in a frank conversation with the Australian psyche. Inspired by perspectives on incarceration, this mesmerising multimedia production juxtaposes the disgraceful disproportion of Indigenous Australians in custody with testimony from inside Australia’s immigration detention centres.
Through movement, spoken word, installation and a powerful original musical soundscape, the multi-talented cast draw on their intersecting yet distinct cultural and community-informed experiences (Indigenous, immigrant, people seeking asylum, transgender and settler) to ask: who really is in prison here?
