YT Dingo at the Brunswick Picture House

YT Dingo  |  Support SOA – Calling to Belong & Red Belly (DJ)

Brunswick Picture House  |  Thursday  |  7pm  |  $27/30

YT Dingo (prod White Dingo) is the personification of blood, sweat, and tears. This is the music and dance project spawned from the genius mind of Travers Ross, encapsulating sounds, movement, and feeling in its rawest form.

He is a versatile vocalist, choreographer, and performer, who disperses his creativity into alternative staged, sonic, and/or filmed art, set to appease all walks of life. YT Dingo shares the stage with raw urban rock musicians and a downunder collection of multi-formed dancers who get behind YT Dingo’s howling screams and original poetic rhyme and dance storytelling.

So what can people expect for his upcoming show at the Brunswick Picture House?

People can expect a big sound playing the EP live and more originals with howling vocals, rhymes, music artistry utilising musicians playing the tracks, and dancers used abstractly and through pop to elevate the beats, moods, and lyrics moving throughout the whole venue. Expect solid acknowledgements to first nations (including three first nations women in YT Dingo’s pack), the land, and fighting for the generations ahead.

Expect a stunning colourful PACK ready to open your eyes and ears wider and get the goosebumps and shivers down your spine waking up parts of you that you forgot were sleeping! Back string-bending Daniel Cox on guitar, Jackson Garcia the drummer who is also a dancer, Yolanda Lowatta (ex Bangarra dancer), AB Sow (African dancer / all style), Jazi Othman (Malaysian/ Indonesian/ all style dancer), Pru Wilson (just returned from London), Jordan O’Davis (first nations all style dancer) and DJ RedBelly (also first nations).

Calling to Belong is the support act, which ideally is also an introduction to White Dingo’s story before being shipwrecked. Dancers of culturally diverse walks of life coming together calling to belong. And in between bridging the gap straight downunder soul RedBelly on the decks (first nation DJ) holding the whole evening together, keeping the music flowing as well as performing with YT Dingo.

Who is the audience for YT Dingo?

This tour is to define that. For now we want everyone to come give it a go. Festival heads will love it, yet with the dance it settles for universal language. I think this show bridges the gap, hence why we are at the Brunswick Picture House!

What do you hope people will leave thinking/feeling?

Thrilled, uplifted, open, new bits of you awakened to new truths. Feeling activated and sweaty from dancing ya tits off!

I hope people feel inspired by the lyrics of YT Dingo’s exposing his brain and moving into his heart back and forth finding his individual truth.

What are your plans for the show… where to next?

Spread this EP and message as far and wide as possible!

The following night we perform Gold Coast’s Miami Marketta and then the following night again we play Brisbane’s Old Museum.

Then we turn into a GLOW version for Glow Festival at HOTA Gold Coast and then head to north Qld with a tour before swinging back all the way through to Melbourne, hitting the NSW coast.
