Bennelong presented by Bangarra Dance Theatre
Created by Artistic Director Stephen Page in 2017, Bennelong explores the life of one of history’s most iconic Aboriginal figures. Woollarawarre Bennelong was a senior man of the Eora people, who led his community to survive a clash of cultures. Through striking dance language, soul-stirring soundscapes and exquisite design, Bangarra unpacks Bennelong’s legacy and its reverberation through contemporary Australian life.
Proud Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander artists from all over Australia come together as a creative clan to harness a shared spirit. The result is Bangarra’s powerful dance language, and utterly unique soundscapes, music and design culminating in the creation of original and breathtaking experiences. This is your chance to be part of it.
Suitable for ages 12+. Warning: This performance contains smoke and haze effects
