This free event for all ages offers cutting edge live music ranging from acclaimed Australian signer and songwriter, Emma Donovan to experimental pop legends, Dream Dog. Experience creative performances that will make you want to dance in the street, play amongst the Story Trees or just sit back and enjoy the delicious food on offer.
Erth Visual & Physical Inc and Wollongong City Council present Marri Dyin (‘Great Woman’), Erth's six metre tall puppet, in a unique performance ‘Ngaramura’ (‘See The Way’ in Dharawal language).
Illuminating the Crown Street Mall, Marri Dyin is the magnificent creative centrepiece for Nights on Crown 2019. Her presence is a symbol of the coming together of people on the land of the oldest continually living culture. Each evening she will perform and move through the landscape, inviting children to sit with her and share their hopes and dreams for the future.
Also featuring Emma Donovan, Jaala, Ziggy Ramo, Shoeb Ahmad, Dream Dog, Tees, Tralala Blip, Buddy Walker and more!
Marri Dyin was originally commissioned by the Barangaroo Delivery Authority for exhibition in Sydney Australia in 2018.
