In 2015 Darren Compton and Jacqui Cornforth founded Muggera Dancers, a family group who prides itself on its cultural knowledge and professionalism. All members of Muggera have been performing and sharing their culture for many years and have been guided by their Elders over many decades.

Muggera has ongoing support from community and family Elders, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander families and communities to share culture, establish the Muggera Dance group and set a new standard for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander cultural performance and engagement in Australia.

Homeground is proudly presenting the Muggera Dancers on both days at Homeground 2017

Presented by the Sydney Opera House.

Homeground

For thousands of years, the land that Sydney Opera House is built on was a gathering place for the Gadigal people who danced and sang here.

Homeground continues the rich history of this site, formerly known as Tubowgule, by bringing the very best First Nations artists from around the world to the Opera House Forecourt for two free days of music, dance, workshops and markets.

Celebrate the power of contemporary artists and ancient customs under the sun and stars at Homeground 2017.
