Campfire to Stagelight Exclusive Preview

CATCH a sneak preview of a new work in development, in this showcase of selected scenes from ‘Campfire To Stagelight’ by David Hudson.

This 40-minute showcase event is not a full performance of the work, rather a work-in-progress showing. It will give audiences entertaining and intriguing insights into the work’s development process with selected scenes and songs followed by a chance to speak to David and his creative team with a question and answer session.

Far North Queensland-born First Nations singer-songwriter, storyteller, dancer, actor, visual artist, ‘Tjapukai’ co-founder, Cultural Leader and Global Ambassador for Indigenous Australia, David Hudson, is working to bring to the stage the stories of his lifetime in a production that is both as epic as The Dreamtime and as intimate as a camp fire yarn.

David has traversed the world promoting cultural awareness, understanding and reconciliation, co-founding the award-winning dance troupe ‘Tjapukai’, whose achievements include being Australia’s longest running theatrical production. David has emerged as a strong cultural leader with a significant arts practice. And this larger-than-life artist, whose personality can fill a stage, still has a few more extraordinary stories to tell.

Developed in partnership with JUTE and with support from the Arts Queensland First Nations Commission fund awarded to David in 2020.

In 2022, ‘Campfire to Stagelight’ will be performed in a full theatrical season, co-produced between JUTE Theatre Company and David’s own company Dideralia, and the show will be a stunning performance feature of the Cairns Indigenous Art Fair.
