Sean Choolburra

Sean is a vibrant, dynamic and captivating performer. Fuse his engaging energy, alongside historical facts, spiritual wisdom, depth of ancestral understanding and knowledge and you have one very exciting and talented cultural ambassador.

Sean Choolburra has just returned from the Edinburgh Fringe 2008 where he presented his "In Didge" Childrens workshop! It was a huge success and when time permits he will return to the UK for an in demand tour of Schools and Colleges. Sean trained and toured internationally with the Bangarra Dance Company and he was the creator and leader of the Naroo Dancers. Most recently his workshops have taken on a more entertaining and humorous nature as his career continues to flourish, grow and develop into an accomplished MC and Comedian.

He has toured schools and colleges throughout Australia, Canada, Japan and New Zealand for over 15 years with his unique cultural program.


The Performance

Sean combines a riveting and highly energetic programme of dance, stories, paint and fire creation, didgeridoo playing with a wonderful array of artefacts from fishing nets to hunting shields.

Students are encouraged to dance, sing, and participate! Dances from Eastern Cape York and the Gulf of Carpentaria are included. The programme concludes with some Hip Hop and other contemporary favorites of Seans.

Sean is Townsville born and raised, his ancestors are Gu-Gu-Yalanji, Kalkadoon, Kandju and Bwgcolman from around Townsville and Palm Island.

  • Workshop Cost
  • ..... the show this morning was wonderful. Sean was exciting, lively and very entertaining. He had all the students from pre-school to year 7 thoroughly enthralled. I would like to book him again next year..... Sheila Delahay Berry Springs PS Northern Territory. Sean was fantastic. His humour, acting and didge playing was awesome. His message of anti-racism and reconciliation was wonderful. His performances revealed a wonderful, warm and caring person. He included the kids, and took aside a young lad with low self esteem. He is now walking on cloud nine. Thank you very much Tom Leach ..... Principal St Andrews Lutheran School - Darwin
