Badu Gili

First Nations stories on ‘Australia’s greatest canvas’ in nightly Sydney Opera House sail lighting

Badu Gili, meaning water light in Gadigal language, is a free daily experience that celebrates the ancient stories and rich contemporary culture of Australia’s First Nations.

The 7 minute animation appears on the Opera House’s eastern Bennelong sail year-round (twice each night, at sunset and 7pm, or 9pm during daylight saving).

Badu Gili 2018 blends the diverse voices of established artist and community leader Djambawa Marawili AM, vibrant watercolour painter Mervyn Rubuntja, internationally renowned artist and prestigious Telstra NATSIAA awards finalist Mabel Juli, painter, lecturer and traditional healer Patricia Ansell Dodds, ceramicist Penny Evans and emerging printmaker Aiona Tala Gaidan, with an original soundscape by Damian Robinson.

Badu Gili is best viewed from the top of the Opera House’s Monumental Steps.
