After 10 months in hibernation, Bangarra Dance Theatre returns to the stage with a series of performances under the stars.
Spirit: a retrospective 2021 draws on 3 decades of repertoire to celebrate the unbroken connection of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people to the land.
Set to a haunting score, Spirit: a retrospective 2021 invites audiences to connect with stories and songlines from across the nation with a collection of work from across the company’s rich history.
Bangarra Dance Theatre is celebrated worldwide for its authentic storytelling and dynamic productions, with technique forged from 65,000 years of culture and integrated with contemporary movement.
This performance features choreography by Stephen Page and Bernadette Walong-Sene, plus traditional choreography and music by Djakapurra Munyarryun, a respected Yolngu songman from north-east Arnhem Land who has worked as a Bangarra cultural consultant for three decades.
The Sydney Festival is a Covid-Safe event.
