The National Film and Sound Archive of Australia (NFSA) latest film takes you on a virtual reality journey of Ingenious song and dance. Canberra audiences can now experience Carriberrie in an immersive film which features 156 dancers and 36 performances. Nine cultural groups have been represented, encompassing both traditional ceremonial song and dance through to contemporary and modern expressions.
NFSA CEO Jan Müller says the film complements the NFSA’s traditional audiovisual formats.
“We are very excited to bring the Carriberrie experience to Canberra audiences,” she says. “As the custodians of a significant collection of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander works, we believe in the power of stories to transcend cultural boundaries and build a deeper understanding and respect.”
Carriberrie uses cutting-edge immersive technologies, the exhibition is impressively progressive using state-of-the-art headsets, interactive large room projections and, for the first time, exhibiting never-before-seen content in the form of full dances available on immersive iPads.
