Formed in 2017, Karul is a Yugambeh word meaning ‘everything’. Named so because Karul Projects will do everything they can to strengthen and empower the cultural knowledge of this land so future generations can continue to learn and enjoy Aboriginal Australia’s rich heritage. Though Karul Projects mainly identify with dance and choreography, they will utilise every medium they feel best suits the story they are sharing. Karul Projects create and continue reconciliation through their art. We learn about the past to better understand the present, so together we can move forward into the future.
Karul Projects has developed and toured work nationally and internationally, including presentations at Next Wave in Melbourne, Australian Performing Arts Market in Brisbane, Dance Massive and Living Ritual in Canada. Karul Projects’ vision is to have a repertoire of works in various stages of development and presentation, for engagement across various markets including locally throughout QLD and Northern NSW, nationally across Australia and internationally. Karul Projects present their work as a beacon to promote and cultivate independent Indigenous dance and activate local communities.
