Kaurna Yerta - The Seasons - Marion
On the final weekend of the Nature Festival, join Kaurna elders, the Taikurtinna Dance Group, led by Jamie Goldsmith, and the Bowerbird Collective for the World Premiere of a spectacular new performance inspired by connection to country and the cycle of the seasons. This one-hour cinematic concert features stunning visuals, immersive soundscapes, song, dance and ceremony, as well as new music for string quintet and traditional instruments by David John Lang. An unmissable, sacred celebration of culture in harmony with nature. Cast your vote in the referendum, then bring a picnic and spend the afternoon with family and friends enjoying films, talks and panel discussions on art and science before a 7:00pm performance.
