The Moment

The signature installation of the 2020 Adelaide Fringe Festival, Yabarra – Dreaming in Light, ran at Tandanya National Aboriginal Cultural Institute from 12 Feb to 15 March. For the 31 days of the Fringe, from 10am until 10pm, over 40,000 people experienced the creation story of Tjilbruke, as interpreted by Karl Winda Telfer and the Williams clan.

Dreaming in Light tells the story of Tjirbruki, but there are so many other elements – the stories of the stars and the ancestors are so important … It’s about looking after and caring for our environment and protecting these few open space places we have left.” — Karl ‘Winda’ Telfer

Monkeystack co-produced the event with the Adelaide Fringe, Cultural and Creative Producer Karl Winda Telfer, Yellaka, implementation partners Novatech, Epson,  and support from the Government of South Australia, City of Adelaide, The University of Adelaide, Illuminart, MOD, and Tandanya, the National Aboriginal Cultural Insitute.
