An immersive and interactive journey through Australia’s First Nations culture, Saltbush centres on the journey of two friends and their spiritual guide on foot as they cross Australian landscapes – river country, an urban landscape, desert, and the sea. The journey is one of discovering the land, growing an understanding, and acknowledging how it shapes and inspires personal journeys. Through its use of sensor and infrared cameras, Saltbush allows young audiences to interact, play and perform in the show. It also provides a unique experience for parents and teachers as they witness the children become involved.
Young ones can also attend the ‘Saltbush Dance Workshop’, a school holiday workshop with Gamilaroi and Mandandanji dancer Nathan Leslie in the Opera House’s Centre for Creativity. Here, children aged 4-9 years old will be able to learn traditional dance moves, play and learn alongside one of Australia’s most experienced First Nations dancers.
