| $15 – $20

Enter the dreamlike terrain of Night River as it travels across the natural world and river systems of the Kimberley and into the ancestral mythology tied to the Mardoowarra (Fitzroy River). A writer, producer and sound designer, Kalaji reinterprets a connection to country through an evocative blend of electronic soundscapes and moving imagery that combine to produce a mesmerising sensory experience.

Kalaji is the Nyikina word for ‘whirlwind’, originating from the Mardoowarra River of far north Western Australia. Kalaji is also the musical alias for in-demand screen and theatre actor Mark Coles Smith. In between winning a Helpmann Award for his role in Leah Purcell’s adaptation of The Drover’s Wife, and receiving AACTA nominations for his film roles in Last Cab to Darwin and Pawno, Mark has also appeared in numerous US television series. His music credits include the score for Ilbijerri Theatre’s recent production Which Way Home along with various short film and album credits.

Night River is his first major experimental work under the alias Kalaji and a must-see immersive multimedia performance.
