As the country celebrates Australia’s Aboriginal and Islander peoples and culture through NAIDOC week events across the country, Sydney Opera House takes a refreshing look into contemporary Indigenous life and cultural identity.

NAIDOC week at the Sydney Opera House from 4 – 6 July celebrates, elevates and plays with the unexpected in indigenous contemporary culture.

Whether we debate topics around Aboriginal racial and sexual identity or dive into the complicated questions of sovereignty, treaty and the constitution in Australia, we examine issues experienced by First Nations and homosexual communities worldwide.

The diversity of our global artists and the collaboration we will see in theatre, film, talks and cabaret art will encourage you to change perceptions and adjust your ‘Native Gayze’.

You will be surprised by the commonalties across First Nations experiences – from the affectionate parody of a ‘Country Superstar’, to a sparkling mix of song, satire and spoken word. During NAIDOC Week at the Sydney Opera House there is the prickly, the polished and the downright crass. We look forward to seeing you there.

When: Between Friday 04 July and Sunday 06 July from 00.00 to 00.00

Where: Sydney Opera House, Bennelong Point Circular Quay 2000

Cost: Film Screenings: Free, Native Gayze: $20 +bf, Tina C: $25 +bf


Celebrating its 25th anniversary in 2014, Bangarra – Australia’s multi award winning dance theatre company – tells the story of Patyegarang, the inspirational journey of a potent Indigenous spirit alive in Australia’s past and present.

As the colonial fleet arrived on Eora country in the late 18th Century, Patyegarang befriended the colony’s timekeeper, Lieutenant William Dawes, gifting him her language in an extraordinary display of trust and friendship, which now inspires our imaginations about ‘first contact’.

In Dawes’ notebooks, rediscovered in 1972, are transcripts of this remarkable cultural exchange. Patyegarang’s words are a window into a rich, complex and utterly different perspective on her world, its values and its sacred meanings.

This deeply moving production is told through the acclaimed creativity of Stephen Page’s choreography and David Page’s soundscape, in a powerful and meaningful dance theatre experience.
