ACPA puts indigenous double act in the spotlight at Brisbane Powerhouse

Indigenous music and dance is showcased by The Aboriginal Centre for the Performing Arts (ACPA) will hit the high notes again at the Visy Theatre, Brisbane Powerhouse on October 23, 24 and 25 in VoxOnyx and Triad, a music and dance double bill.

It opens with VoxOnyx – Sounds and Words of Strength, Courage, Perseverance and Wisdom – the voice of the black crystal, where music diploma and advanced diploma students explore the meaning of the black onyx crystal in a stylish theatrical cabaret showcasing Indigenous music and dance. They feature tunes from Kate Bush, India Arie, Bob Marley and Sarah MacLachlan, mashed with self-realisation to make a concoction to build a dream on.

Following this, Triad comprises the indigenous dance renderings of renowned Australian performers /choreographers Brian Lucas, Sunday Lucia and Uncle Albert David. Working with ACPA’s Cert 4, diploma and advanced diploma dance students, the choreographers shape these exciting emerging performers to produce a layered and moving dance in triplicate.

VoxOnyx and Triad is a tribute to ACPA’s commitment to and passion and vision for these special young artists.

The show runs October 23, 24 and 25 at 7pm at Visy Theatre, Brisbane Powerhouse
