‘It is time for us all to find our way back to the fire, for the strong stories of our First Peoples to inspire hope and signify an awakening to the truth of our entire existence’ Archie Roach in SKY SONG.
Drone art specialists, Celestial, and First Nations Artists invite you to gaze up, and reignite your relationship with the stars at Sky Song. Watch the sky come alive with hundreds of drones flying in majestic formation to a soundtrack of First Nations storytelling through poetry and song.
Narrated by singer, songwriter and tireless campaigner Archie Roach, Sky Song unfolds over five chapters, taking audiences through topics of belonging and connection to country, land rights, the hopefulness of reconciliation and much more.
Sky Song is a collaboration between Gluttony, Celestial, Adelaide Fringe, Deadly Management, Archie Roach, Electric Fields, Iwiri Choir, Nancy Bates, Major Moogy Summer, Jack Buckskin of Kuma Kaaru; Ali Cobby Eckermann; Dusty Feet Mob, Mali Isabel and APY Arts Collective. Supported by: South Australian Tourism Commission (Major Partner) Restart Investment to Sustain and Expand (RISE) Fund – an Australian Government initiative, Novatech and British Council.
