Badu Gili - Celebrating First Nations Culture

Each night at sunset, Badu Gili would light up the eastern Bennelong Sail with ancient First Nations stories in a spectacular seven-minute projection. As the lights are dimmed on the sails, we bring Badu Gili to your living room. Recorded on the Monumental Steps in 2017 and 2018

Curated by Rhoda Roberts, Head of First Nations Programming, Badu Gili traces the ancient songlines of First Nations storytelling across Australia. See the works of eminent First Nations artists including Judith (Jenuarrie) Warrie, Mervyn Rubuntja and Djambawa Marawili AM projected onto the Opera House's eastern Bennelong sail across two chapters, accompanied by an original soundscape by Damian Robinson.
