From Campfire to Stage Light is an epic journey toward self-determination and Indigenous pride, as told through the life experience of David Bindi Hudson, a well-known and loved cultural leader and global ambassador for Indigenous Australia.
David is the ultimate storyteller, singer-songwriter, dancer, visual artist and actor and the performance is brought to life through storytelling, songs, and extraordinary visual design.
At a young age his mother, Esme, a Western Yalanji woman, takes David to live on his father’s traditional country, the lands of the Ewamian people. There he’s guided by the Elders in cultural knowledge and given his cultural name, Bindi, meaning ‘look forward’. He embarks upon the world adventure with this new name and a new mission—to bring the culture of his people out of the campfire light and into the global spotlight.
David’s stories take us from his traditional lands to the international mega stages on which David traversed the world musically. Today David is a pre-eminent cultural leader with an inspiring story to share with audiences of all ages and backgrounds.
