Bangarra Dance Theatre in partnership with Carriageworks, will present Knowledge Ground: 30 years of sixty five thousand. A fully immersive installation experience, Knowledge Ground celebrates Australia’s leading Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander performing arts company’s landmark 30th anniversary.

Offering a whole new dimension of the Bangarra experience, Artistic Director, Stephen Page and Head of Design, Jacob Nash have carefully curated an experience that explores the many songlines that make up Bangarra’s Knowledge Ground. The free exhibition will celebrate and share 30 years of Bangarra’s vital connection to Country and Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander dance theatre stories.

Guided by shifting lighting states designed by Nick Schlieper, and undulating choral soundscape composed by David Page, visitors will navigate a series of thematic worlds, created using unique elements from Bangarra’s productions - including set, costumes, artefacts, AV projection, language recordings and film footage of the Bangarra dancers. Each world explores the themes that are central to Bangarra’s work – Country, Language, kinship, social, history - and provide an opportunity for visitors to connect to the song, dance and stories that Bangarra have been sharing with audiences for the last 30 years.

With the roots of Bangarra’s work being created on Country, their work is entrusted to the company by Elders and communities across Australia, and is inspired by the stories, song, dance and language of 65,000 years of unbroken cultural knowledge.

The installation of Knowledge Ground at Carriageworks will coincide with the launch of an all-new digital platform housing Bangarra’s award-winning work, stories, songlines, and continual relationships with family and communities. This ever-evolving archive will continue to expand as Bangarra enters its fourth decade, sharing the company’s work online with visitors around the world, and continuing their songline.
