A Vibrant offering of Song, Dance & Connection - Perfect for Father’s Day!

National aboriginal icon Bunna Lawrie of the band “Coloured Stone” will visit the Central Coast and perform in public at the Entrance Memorial Park at 1.30pm on Sunday 3rd September 2006.

The Entrance Town Centre Management are excited to play host to an indigenous ceremony celebrating Whale Dreaming country on Fathers Day. Bunna Lawrie, co-producer and starring in the film “The Gathering – Return of the Whale Dreamers” is looking forward to visiting the Central Coast and being involved in the planned activities for the day.

“This visit by Bunna & the performance by local aboriginals is a wonderful opportunity for all of us to participate and enjoy a sense of community and connection” says co-ordinator Nikki Freeburn “the film The Gathering – Return of the Whale Dreamers is an extraordinary experience and we invite all to see”.

The Central Coast is also Whale Dreaming country with indigenous people the Darkinjung.

The events of the day are centred around the connection of earth, people and all creatures, with the award-winning film to be screened at the Entrance Cinema at 3.30pm following the performance in the Park. Film-maker Kim Kindersley & Bunna Lawrie have spent almost a decade in creating this film which is co-produced by Julian Lennon and passionately narrated by Jack Thompson. Julian Lennon has re-entered the studio after an 8 year break to re-record his single “Saltwater” for this film, which will be released internationally early next year.

We invite families to come and join in the ceremony, bring a picnic and experience first hand the powerful energy of traditional song and didgeridoo, starting with a smudging ceremony. Then they can join us for the screening of the film at the Entrance Cinema.

Performance 1.30 – 2.30pm Main Stage Memorial Park

Film screening 3.30- 5.30pm The Entrance Cinema (hosted by Bunna Lawrie)

Performance is free to the public, with film prices $15 – children’s tickets available. A percentage of the ticket price will go to The Gathering project.
