Tales from Saibai Island

Zugubal is a breathtaking dance from NAISDA, Australia’s Premier Indigenous Dance College. Zugubal is a word used by all Torres Strait Islander people to acknowledge and give respect for past, present and future law. This exciting performance will feature Koiki by renowned Indigenous choreographer Gail Mabo, including traditional dancers from the Torres Strait. Koiki is the story of Gail’s late father, the celebrated Eddie Mabo, in a contemporary new form of creative expression that takes us on the journey of Eddie Mabo’s life. The program will also include dynamic new contemporary works by some of Australia’s noted choreographers.
