Grounded in Aboriginal culture, Our Corka Bubs offers captivating storytelling through movement and music, inspired by Ngarrindjeri culture and language.

The performance circle is a space for interactive play, guided by three dancers and storyteller Owen Love. Gentle motifs of water and earth are combined with gestures that mimic iconic Australian animals. They are entwined with language and stories of Ngarrindjeri land and water along the lakes of the River Murray.

Audiences of all ages are entranced by this captivating show that has been carefully crafted for babies. This is a transformative experience for little ones, carers and for the whole family to enjoy.

Touring across regional South Australia, as well as Sydney Opera House, Arts Centre Melbourne and most recently DreamBIG Children’s Festival in Adelaide.

Our Corka Bubs is a sister work of This [Baby] Life by Sally Chance Dance and was originally produced in association with Country Arts SA.

Our Corka Bubs is designed for babies and children (aged 4 months – 3 years) to attend with their parent or caregiver. All babies/ toddlers must be accompanied by a parent or caregiver. The show capacity is 20 babies/ toddlers, seated around a circular mat, with their parent or caregiver seated on the floor behind them.

The show is not recommended for children aged over 3 years, as developmentally the child may be too advanced, and this may impact the participation of others. If a child aged over 3 years does attend, we have a dedicated seating area, outside the circle/ stage space, from which to observe the show.

The show has capacity for an additional 20 adults (such as family members or other friends) to observe the show from the dedicated seating area.
