Join us for this historical moment as we bring together seven Aboriginal ballet dancers of Australia.
Co-hosted by the founder of BlaKDance Marilyn Miller and the Artistic Director of the Australian Ballet David McAllister, this panel will take you on a journey of history, friendship, generosity and hope. Immersed in the crimes of colonialism, these indomitable human beings rose up from missions in the 1950s, children’s homes and broken families, forging careers as ballet dancers, trailblazing pathways for the future generations. This panel is the culmination of a dream by Roslyn Watson, to bring all the ballet dancers together.
Panellists include: Mary Miller, Noel Tovey, Roslyn Watson, Lillian Crombie, Damian Smith, Ella Havelka and Evie Ferris.
Our forgotten heroes.
Presented By BlaKDance, YIRRAMBOI and Australian Ballet
