Audiences from Lismore and beyond were treated to a very special event last week as NORPA presented Djurra, a work in drama and dance.

Packed houses were enthralled by the work inspired by a Bundjalung Nation creation story – Djurra presented a coexisting modern story within the piece, a sad but not uncommon set of issues for contemporary Aboriginal people.

The last show for Djurra was held on Saturday and everyone turned out to see what all the buzz was about.

In conjunction with ArtState, City Hall also hosted an enormous sand sculpture made by local Indigenous artists Digby Moran and Richard Clarke. Two days in the making, the work is based on a traditional Bundjalung diamond pattern.
