About the event
Where the river meets the sky - Moombaki
An epic spectacle of light, movement and sound will transform the night sky in the Fremantle Biennale’s presentation of Moombaki.
The Nyoongar word for ‘where the river meets the sky’, Moombaki is a choreographed drone light show re-creating the first stories of Whadjuk Nyoongar Country for all to experience. With artworks created by Ilona McGuire and a narrative guided by story and knowledge held by Whadjuk Nyoongar Traditional Owners Doris Getta, Marion Kickett, Karen Jacobs, Glenys Yarren, Neville Collard, Stan Headland, Farley Garlett, Walter McGuire Brendan Moore, and project contributors Rohin Kickett and Grant Revell, Moombaki launches the Fremantle Biennale program in 2021.
Various locations and shows
Across three locations in Fremantle, Melville and Cockburn, Moombaki will see over 160 drones take flight over the stage of the bilya (river) and wardan (ocean), to reveal a series of connected stories.
