Every part of Australia is,
always was and always will be,
Aboriginal land.

As a community gathering-place, a festival of arts, cultural exchange and celebration and as a site for the sharing of ideas and stories, Ten Days on the Island pays respect to the Palawa/Tasmanian Aborigines – The original owners and cultural custodians - of all the lands and waters across Lutruwita/Tasmania upon which our Festival takes place.

With thanks to the Tasmanian Aboriginal Centre for place names and other words in palawa kani, the language of Tasmanian Aborigines.

Ten Days on the Island is closely following and implementing all restrictions and recommendations advised by National and State Governments regarding public gatherings and event venues, you can find the relevant government information here.

We, as well as the venue will be managing the risk of COVID-19 at our event venues in the following ways:

  1. Public availability of hand sanitiser at Festival venues.
  2. Patrons, staff, volunteers and artists are encouraged not to attend events if they are unwell.

Join Dancenorth on a gentle movement progression to energise the body and enliven the spirit.

Participants will be invited to explore their immense capacity for physical and sensorial experience, escaping all things sedentary and embracing movement that will strengthen, connect and restore our natural physical and biological state. Together with Dancenorth’s lead artists, participants will move with the wind and respond to the sky, gathering energy and insight from the environment.
