Djuki Mala (The Chooky Dancers)

Djuki Mala (Chooky Dancers) are touring nationally throughout 2014 with their self-titled and long awaited show Djuki Mala proudly presented by Artback NT: Arts Development and Touring.

Djuki Mala shot to international prominence in 2007 with their Zorba the Greek dance, viewed on YouTube by over two million viewers.

For over a decade, dance innovators Djuki Mala have been exploring and re-establishing the notions of contemporary Aboriginal performance.

Hailing from Galiwin’ku Community (Elcho Island) in North East Arnhem Land, Djuki Mala have again teamed up with Creative Producer and Artistic Director Joshua Bond to create a show full of excitement for the whole family.

Djuki Mala continue to redefine the unique physical language they are known and loved for by marrying it with acrobatics and diverse flavours of dance and theatre, and their own keen sense of humour. Djuki Mala promise audiences both laughter and insight. This is a rare opportunity to engage with performers from a very remote part of this vast and diverse country.
