The Wilyabrup Project

Still from film, Aerialists: Brenna Day and Bonnie Blewitt

Above the waves, beneath the sky, against the rock. Moving against a staggering vertical cliff face, suspended above wild crashing ocean, two artists dance with the roaring wind and each-other in a celebration of human connection, our experience of nature and the vast wilderness that is the Wilyabrup sea cliffs.

Filmed on Wadandi land in the south west of Western Australia.

Inspired by the location of the sea cliffs at Wilyabrup

The Wilyabrup project was selected for Perth Revelation International Film Festival 2022, The Circus International Film Festival 2022, Sans Souci Festival of Dance Cinema 2022, Inspired Dance Film Festival 2022, and Francigena Film Festival 2022.
