Introduction-This form of Australian theatre was performed by aboriginals and is typically referred to as Dreamtime. These series of dances were performed at ceremonies and celebrations that involved story telling, music and dance. Dreamtime stories are still performed to this day. This style of theatre told stories about how the aboriginals believed the world and all it contains came about including how natural land features were formed. This form of story telling was the first type of theatre to be performed in Australia.
Dreamtime aboriginal theatre is tied to aboriginal culture, beliefs and the connections between the sacred, the physical and the human worlds. These stories about life are brought to life by the physical and verbal dialogue, costume and makeup, staging/location in which it is performed, art works and music.
