The Chooky Dancers are from Elcho Island a remote Northern Territory community just off the coast of Arnhem Land, 550km east of Darwin. The Chooky Dancers became a YouTube sensation in 2007 after a three minute clip of them performing ‘Zorba the Greek’ was uploaded.
Always exuberant and blending their contemporary experience as young people with their traditional culture, their identity as Yolngu people remains in the foreground.
The Chooky Dancers fuse traditional and contemporary forms of dance, dressed in traditional costumes and ochre, with Gara (spears) & Galpu (spear thrower) to create a work that is a marvel of timing, comedy and clowning, warming both the heart and soul. Behind the humour is a startling movement skill and discipline, drawn from traditional culture.
Djuki Mala promises you both laughter and insight. This is a rare opportunity to engage with performers from a very remote part of this vast and diverse country.
