A First Nations Creation Story presented like never before
The Fire Garden is unlike any traditional show. Wamba Wamba man, Uncle Ron Murray will tell a Creation Story. Like the drive-in cinemas of yesteryear, Uncle Ron’s words will be broadcasted to the car radios of audience members parked around the performance site at night. Accompanying the story will be awe inspiring pyrotechnics, goliath puppets and beautiful projections, transporting the audience to the time where country was created by animals and the spirits.
Music, Light, Sound and Story, all culminating in a spectacular fireworks display.
