Acclaimed Aussie performing artist Paul Taylor delights in celebrating the culture of his homeland through, story, song, dance, painting and didjeridoo. 

This planetarium show celebrates the vast Star Law of Australian Wardaman Aboriginal Elder, Yidumduma Bill Harney, and his groundbreaking work with Dr. Hugh Cairns in their 2003 publication of Dark Sparklers.This presentation was conceived in the US by Yidumduma’s student of over 25 years, Adelaide born Paul Taylor, in collaboration with Colorado University Astronomy Professor, Dr. John Stocke. Presented for over 12 years at Colorado’s Fiske Planetarium, this show has been endorsed and co-presented with both Yidumduma and Dr. Cairns.

You will hear the Wardaman Creation Story and Songs of the Dreaming and how it links to the Songlines in the night sky with stunning photo galleries of rock art, land, animals and video clips of Yidumduma, amassed by dedicated research over many years.
