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 are developing and producing new, innovative and thought-provoking works.
‘The Other Side of Me’ is a poignant contemporary dance work drawing upon a collection of letters and poems written by a man born in Kalkarindji (NT) 1966, who was adopted by an English family and raised in Cornwall (UK). The production explores identity, the criminal justice system and psychological health.
A new cross-cultural work in music, song and dance, ‘The Voyage of Bayini’, intertwines Gumatj Yolŋu stories about the first visitors to Arnhem Land. A collaboration between First Nations artists from Arnhem Land and Taiwan.
Three emerging creatives are being supported as part of a disability mentorship and professional development program in the theatre production ‘Trash Magic’, a tale about family, nature and MESS!
