Bangarra Dance Theatre has a long history of performing in Canberra. Over time the works we have seen from this acclaimed Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander company have always been powerful and moving evocations of Indigenous culture and history - stories of the land, the people and the connections between them. The works have consistently been visually stunning in both set and costume design. Choreographically they have looked back to an ancient dancing heritage while also embodying a contemporary dance vocabulary. In addition, they have always been danced to original scores or soundscapes.
