Warm your heart and soul
So you want to go to a Fringe show but can't afford it? Or you're thinking about going to see YouTube sensation Djuki Mala at the Spiegeltent but you're not sure? Here's your solution: you can have a sneak peek of the dance act's highly anticipated Fringe show at one of Hawaiian's shopping centres around Perth.

Djuki Mala, formerly known as The Chooky Dancers, have been a global sensation ever since a clip of their unique version of Zorba the Greek, which had been created as a joyful thank you, was uploaded in 2007. They've been creating new work and touring nationally and internationally ever since.

As Yolngu people, their identity is always in the foreground but they fuse traditional and contemporary forms of dance, which they imbue with a comedic element that has its origins in Yolngu culture as much as traditional dance does.

These high energy, funny performers in traditional costumes and ochre, blend traditional and contemporary pop culture, dance and storytelling to create an exuberant performance.
