Filmed at the Laura Dance Festival in far north Queensland, the Tjapukai Cultural Theatre and other venues, this film focuses on Aboriginal dance and body art as an expression and celebration of a belief system. The ritual function of the different dances and the significance of the diverse range of colours and patterns used as part of the body decoration worn by the participants is also examined. The rich cultural heritage of Aboriginal dance has seen it re-emerge, revitalised, not as an anthropological curiosity, but as a vibrant performance art, onto the world stage.
