ARTISTRY, PASSION AND PHYSICALITY

In 2017, Bangarra presents a new contemporary dance work, choreographed by Artistic Director Stephen Page, inspired by true events.

Woollarawarre Bennelong was a senior man of the Eora, from the Port Jackson area in Sydney. In a tumultuous time of Australia’s history, Bennelong and the Eora Nation transcended “first contact”, leaving us a legacy that is still so tangible in our 21st century.

Bennelong highlights the extraordinary curiosity and diplomacy that led an Aboriginal community to survive a clash of cultures. 

This brand-new work is Bangarra at its best. In a unique Australian dance language, the company embraces history  celebrating the continuation of life and culture with the power, artistry, passion and physicality of the country’s most acclaimed dancers.

“In no other company’s work are past and present so potently, inextricably intertwined” – The Australian
