Our touring project and unique choreographed drone light and sound event, First Lights, has travelled across Western Australia and Australia in 2022 – 2023. Led by Traditional Owners and artists from each region, First Lights pioneers new technologies and artistic practices to share ancient knowledge and the first stories of place.

As our drones took flight in Albany, Western Australia for First Lights — Binalup, we commissioned film director Luna Laure to document the immense journey that encompassed the development of this ancient story. With interviews from award-winning Noongar artist Kim Scott, Menang Custodians and the technical team behind it, witness insights into the mammoth undertaking that is bringing stories of Country to the skies.

First Lights – Binalup was co-presented with the City of Albany.

“This piece is inspired by some of the Creation Stories around the town of Albany. Riffing on rhythms of south coastal Noongar language and gathering energy from pools and pulsing water, it summons the great Mother to return with light and song and open up our world.”
