The internationally acclaimed and award winning Bangarra Dance Theatre will showcase some of their best dancers and choreography with OUR land people stories on stage on Saturday February 17.
OUR land people stories was the recipient of the Outstanding Performance by a Company in the 2017 Australian Dance Awards.
Lead by well known Artistic Director, Stephen Page, Bangarra Dance Theatre is an Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander organisation and one of Australia’s leading performing arts companies, exhibiting authentic storytelling, outstanding technique and deeply moving performance as their unique signature.
OUR land people stories is a triple bill featuring three personal and profound works by Bangarra Dance Theatre, including Nyapanyapa choregraphy by Stephen Page himself, inspired by the textured paintings of Yirrkala Nyapanyapa Yunupingu.
In Miyagan, the kinship systems of Wiradjuri country are explored by dancers Beau Dean Riley Smith and Daniel Riley and in Macq, the true history of Sydney is uncovered by Jasmine Sheppard, examining the two sides of Governor Macquarie.
