Enter a world of opposing forces.
Each year Tracks showcases the rich cultural mix of the Territory in their sell out Darwin Festival performances. This year enter another of Tracks’ spectacular outdoor venues and be transported into a world of opposite forces, where popular culture and tradition collide.
Zombies in the Banyan Tree merges break dance, traditional Balinese and contemporary dance forms, accompanied by original, live music created by a beatboxer and a 30-piece Kecak dance choir.
In Balinese culture the Banyan Tree represents the balance of opposite forces, the living and the dead, good and bad, clean and unclean, it is a place where spirits reside. Zombie explores our fast changing cultural landscape and the excitement and fear that accompanies this, whilst investigating links between popular culture and long held traditions. In our future, which side will you be on?
