Ocean Spirit Rising

20 May - 22 May 2021

6.30 and 7.30 pm

A unique experience that brings together art, music, storytelling and design

Water, light, music and dance combine in this spectacular live performance

Join us as the museum comes to life with a free performance that celebrates our connection to the ocean.

A spectacular moving water fountain display will provide a kaleidoscopic backdrop to traditional and contemporary performances by First Nations and Pacific Islander dancers.

Moving together in sychronised harmony, the performers and the water fountain will evoke the spirit of the ocean, co-existence between people and the precious waters that bless our island nation.
