SONGS FROM THE SKY

Stories of the River shared through immersive theatre and song.

Step into an immersive celebration of the history and culture of the Parramatta River as told through song, dance and feasting.

Local luminary Christine Johnston and her band will magically weave stories of place and people into a compelling song-cycle, where you can hear, see and taste the beauty and diversity of who we were, who we are and what we aspire to become as a river community in Western Sydney.

Set in a sculptural installation inspired by the river landscape, with locally made dumplings served by the charismatic Flying Pieman, let live music, dance and theatre performance transform the twilight sky.

A must see, must hear, must taste experience. Join us for this open-air concert.

The performance begins with a special First Nations performance and Welcome by Jannawi Dance Clan with Artistic Director, Darug woman Peta Strachan.
