OUR land people stories

Dance

Presented by Araluen Arts Centre and Bangarra Dance Theatre

“a celebration of the resilient human spirit and the healing power of art” 
                   The Sunday Telegraph

After a triumphant national tour in 2016, Bangarra take their triple bill OUR land people stories to regional Australia in 2018.

This season features three personal and profound works. Nyapanyapa, by Bangarra’s Artistic Director Stephen Page, is inspired by the beautifully textured paintings of Yirrkala artist Nyapanyapa Yunupingu. The kinship systems of Wiradjuri country are explored by dancers Beau Dean Riley Smith and Daniel Riley in Miyagan, and the true history of Sydney is uncovered in Macq by Jasmin Sheppard, which examines the two sides to Governor Macquarie.

Bangarra’s dance technique is forged from over 65,000 years of culture, embodied with contemporary movement. The company are internationally acclaimed for their powerful dance language, distinctive theatrical voice and striking soundscapes, music and design.

The Daily Telegraph called OUR land people stories a triple treat, with its “mesmerising dance, hypnotic music and stunning staging” – don’t miss your chance to see this uniquely Australian dance company in 2018.
