DESERT DREAMING THEATRE SURVIVAL
Mani-Mani Indigenous Cultural Theatre Company
"NEVER LET IT BE SAID THAT TO DREAM IS A WASTE OF ONE'S TIME, FOR DREAMS ARE OUR REALITY IN WAITING. IN DREAMING WE PLANT THE SEEDS OF OUR FUTURE".
We are an aboriginal owned & operated company based at Ayers Rock Uluru within the Northern Territory. We have been delivering daily theatre shows & local traditional dance performances for the past 5 years to visitors & tourists wanting to experience the local culture first hand.With the use of traditional song & dance mixed with the latest holographic technology sound & lighting effects we have been able to bring traditional dreaming stories to life.

As a company which works closely with Traditional Elders & Young Indigenous Performers from the surrounding desert communities we have a broader vision to build a theatre specially for visitirs to Uluru to engage in local Indigenous Cultural Arts.

To survive we need to start raising money for infastructure so we can operate as an independent theatre. Our big dream is to own a theatre space. Ayers Rock is made up of very large organisations who own & operate all the infastructure located in the region. Currently we operate our theatre within one of these larger corporations & we are limited in our ability to expand & grow. To be able to provide traditional owners with a space to continue to create these amazing productions without restrictions on service delivery & income will enable us to opetate at a higher level.
In the local area despite what you may see or hear there is really nothing put here for local aboriginal people to express themselves & their traditional culture freely & independantly. With a dream of having our own infastructure the community can have something to call their own, opening up our scope to continue to provide visitors to uluru with our unique productions & guest experiences.
Please spread the word, any funds raised will go directly to this project & all money raised will go into an infrastructure fund. No one will benefit as an individual from the results of this project it will be owned by the land & community for generations to come.
PALYA & Thankyou.
