December 1942: US bomber ‘Little Eva’ was returning to base after a bombing raid over New Guinea. It hit a storm and crashed at Moonlight Creek in Australia’s far north. Aeroplane Dance dramatises the Americans’ struggle to survive in an unfamiliar land, a place they experienced as hostile, and brings together the Americans’ and Yanyuwa peoples’ tales of war, survival, story-telling and the creation of legends.
