Marvel in awe as over 200 performers hit the stage over an unforgettable weekend hosted by the Warlpiri people of Lajamanu and Tracks Dance Company.

The Warlpiri People of Lajamanu and Tracks Dance Company draw together the strengths and hopes of the elders and youth over one unforgettable weekend. Featuring a spectacular dance performance with over 200 performers, and including visual arts exhibition and sales, artist's talks and more.

Milpirri has developed out of a relationship between the community and Tracks which begun in 1988. With three successful festivals Milpirri has established itself as one of the most exciting artistic inter-cultural ventures in Australia. It embraces and celebrates what it means to live with and upon this land.

Staged in the remote desert community of Lajamanu, 580 kilometres south west of Katherine, half way between Alice Springs and Darwin. The fourth Milpirri performance will be informed by ceremony connected to Wati Jarra, and Pulya-Ranyi, the winds of change that stoke the fire.

A permit is required through the Central Land Council to attend this event.
