A corroboree is a traditional ceremony that marks an important occasion. It relates to the spiritual world and is another way of passing down Aboriginal culture, beliefs and stories. Sometimes only men and boys are present, at other times women play a supportive role in dance and song. Corroborees are held in the bush and involve dance, drama, music, body paint and costume. They are elaborate productions, rehearsed over long periods, linked with rituals, ceremonies and storytelling.
We have created our own versions of a corroboree by trying to represent Australian animals through the medium of dance. Can you guess which animals we are trying to portray?
