Maali Festival

Black Swan State Theatre Company of WA and Perth Theatre Trust present Maali Festival

Curated by Ian Michael and Chloe Ogilvie

A free two-day festival during NAIDOC Week celebrating the oldest living cultures on earth. 

Set over two incredible days of NAIDOC Week, curators Ian Michael (Wilman Nyoongar) and Chloe Ogilvie (Yamatji Nhanda) bring us a festival reclaiming the State Theatre Centre in Maali, named after the Nyoongar word for black swan. In an act of celebration, community and gathering this multi-disciplinary arts festival will acknowledge and celebrate the incredible breadth and diversity of the world’s oldest living cultures. From traditional dance to a return of the groundbreaking play Bindjareb Pinjarra, with musical acts including electronic duo Electric Fields, Maali is both a connection to a place before, and a look towards the future.
 
Kaya,
 
NAIDOC Week is coming and we’re throwing a party. Actually - a festival! Free for all! The whole street is invited. This includes you. Tell the city, tell the state, tell the country. It’s time to listen. It’s time to acknowledge. It’s time to dance.
 
It’s time.
