The Village Festival and MainFM presents,
The Village Fire Garden.
Postponed due to CoVid. Unfortunately the proposed event date of the 19th of June has had to be changed to a date in July. Stay tuned for news.
This ambitious new production of enormous proportions will come to the Mount Alexander Shire.
The production is centred around an Indigenous Creation story of the river country of southern NSW told by indigenous educator and much loved storyteller Wamba Wamba man, Uncle Ron Murray.
Like the drive-in cinemas of yesteryear, Uncle Ron’s story will be broadcasted to the car radios of audience members parked around the Maldon Racecourse at night. Accompanying the creation story will be awe inspiring pyrotechnics, goliath puppets and beautiful projections, transporting the audience.
Music, Light, Sound and Story, all culminating in a spectacular fireworks display.
This show pays respect to First Nations traditions and it is a collaboration between indigenous and non-indigenous artists and performers living on Jaara country.
$45 tickets can be booked for an entire carload and all audience members will be invited to a special “afterparty” held back in the Village Square in the centre of Castlemaine with live music and entertainment.
Proudly supported by Multicultural Arts Victoria, Regional Arts Victoria, Australian Multicultural Community Services, Carers Australia, Creative Victoria, The Tap room and the Mount Alexander Shire.
