The 2024 Adelaide Festival opens with the world premiere of Baleen Moondjan, a contemporary ceremony from creative visionary, Stephen Page.

Inspired by a story from Stephen's grandmother from the Ngugi/Nunuku/Moondjan people of Minjerribah (Stradbroke Island), Baleen Moondjan celebrates First Nations' relationships between baleen whales and communities' totemic systems.

The signature elements that have defined Stephen Page's career are all present in this work with dramatic storytelling, striking choreography and haunting live music integrated into a stunningly designed world from Jacob Nash.
