Marrugeku are in the midst of revisioning Cut the Sky, a work exploring climate change, community and survival and are thrilled to have some of our long term collaborators and new cast members together again this work premiered nearly 10 years ago! Cut the Sky will premiere at Carriageworks, Sydney 4–14 July.

Cut the Sky erupts in unpredictable shifts through the detritus of the past and the present in the north of Western Australia. Beginning in a near future as climate refugees, a displaced traditional owner, Indigenous and settler mining workers, a geologist, a sex worker, a scavenger and a protester reoccur in defining moments for the Kimberley as they face ever present end times. Tossed together in an extreme weather event, they shape-shift as a flock of urgent, spiralling butterflies— propelled through time tunnels to ratchet up the stakes in the search for water, for connection, for the future.

Featuring the epic perspectives of dream catcher Edwin Lee Mulligan seeing his Nyikina and Walmajarri Country through the eyes of his totems, songs by Ngaiire and Tanya Tagaq, Cut the Sky asks what it takes to dream a different future together?
