Bangarra Dance Theatre - Surrounds
Bangarra creates inspiring dance theatre productions of integrity and excellence that resonate with people throughout Australia and the world.
Under the Artistic Direction of Stephen Page, Bangarra is Australia's leading Indigenous performing arts company, weaving traditional and modern cultures seamlessly into its award-winning dance theatre productions.
With studios in the arts precinct on Hickson Road in Walsh Bay, the 14 member dance ensemble originates from across Australia representing numerous Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander clans. Bangarra tours extensively to capital cities, regional and remote centres across Australia and internationally.
Celebrating its 25th anniversary in 2014, Bangarra tells the story of Patyegarang, a gift of Australian history in a remarkable dance experience about first contact.
Bangarra performs Patyegarang in its world premiere season at the Sydney Opera House from 13 June 2014.
