With Musicians from Melbourne Youth Orchestra

Spinifex Gum has disarmed and uplifted audiences across Australia, bringing together the sound of Marliya, a choir of talented young Indigenous women and girls from Far North Queensland and the Torres Strait, the music of Felix Riebl and Ollie McGill (The Cat Empire) and choreography of Deborah Brown.

Led by Lyn Williams, Spinifex Gum will join with the Melbourne Symphony Orchestra, Felix Riebl and Emma Donovan in a symphonic version of a show which is part political and part aspirational, exploring hard-hitting issues of our time, themes of friendship and empowerment, and celebrating what can be achieved when we come together as one.

Presented in NAIDOC week, this is music and art to challenge and inspire contemporary Australia.

Music composed by Felix Riebl, orchestrated by Ross Irwin and Ollie McGill, choreographed by Deborah Brown.
