Saltbush By Compagnia TPO & Insite Arts In Co-Production With Teatro Metastasio Stabile Della Toscana, And Is Toured By Performing Lines.

Saltbush is an exquisite interactive journey through the cultures and landscapes of Aboriginal Australia, celebrated through live dance, music, song, stories and exceptional digital art. An ensemble of Aboriginal artists collaborated with Insite Arts and the internationally acclaimed Italian company Compagnia TPO to create this highly acclaimed work.

Saltbush centres on the journey of two friends from different Aboriginal backgrounds as they cross Australia on foot. They travel across diverse landscapes – rivers, urban zones, the desert and the sea – all the while discovering ‘country’. Their trek promotes a better understanding of our own challenges and personal journeys, and explores indigenous people’s connection to country and songlines.

Children are invited to explore, play and dance with the performers as the landscape unfolds around them, providing a unique, intimate and immersive experience where the audience plays a part of this visually beautiful journey.

Saltbush succeeds in engaging its audience through imagination, asking us to find ways to love this strange and beautiful country; at the same time encouraging us to learn as much as we can from our Indigenous brothers and sisters, before it’s too late – Emma Bedford, Arts Hub

…Stirs the senses… (It doesn’t) just talk about stars, the children can actually chase them through the night. With the little ones in particular, their imaginations run wild. They’re not only standing on a lily pad, they’re worried about getting their feet wet if they fall off! – Liz Power, The Age
