Info: Contemporary dance that leaves you in awe of Australia’s history
Bangarra Dance Theatre is acclaimed worldwide for its authentic storytelling, moving performances and utterly distinctive voice. In 2017, the company returns with Bennelong, a new full-length work by Artistic Director Stephen Page.
Woollarawarre Bennelong was a senior man of the Eora, from the Port Jackson area in Sydney. With extraordinary curiosity and diplomacy, Bennelong led his community to survive a clash of cultures, and left a legacy that reverberates through contemporary life.
Bennelong is Bangarra at its best. In a unique Australian dance language, the company celebrates the continuation of life and culture, with the power, artistry and passion of the country’s most acclaimed dancers. With its immersive soundscapes and exquisite design, Bennelong will leave you in awe of Australia’s history – and its power to repeat.
Don’t miss this chance to experience Bangarra in 2017.
