Description Premiering at the 2004 Adelaide Festival for five performances only. Untamed and enigmatic, Gulpilil straddles the bush world of his homeland Marwuyu, Arnhem Land and the commercial world of movie fantasy. More extraordinary than the characters he has portrayed, David Gulpilil's life is an epic tale of a traditional young Madipingu man who, without a word of English, rockets to international attention. One of Australia's greatest living treasures, Gulpilil comes to the stage for the first time under the direction of pre-eminent director Neil Armfield.
