Bangarra is a company of professional Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander performers. As one of Australia's leading performing arts companies, they share their culture with communities and audiences across Australia and the world. Bangarra started in 1989, but their dance technique is forged from over 65,000 years of culture, embodied with contemporary movement.
Each year they premiere a new work which plays at the Sydney Opera House in June and July before touring the country.
The company's dancers are professionally trained, dynamic artists who represent the pinnacle of Australian dance. Each has a proud Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander background, from various locations across the country.
Relationships with Indigenous communities are the heart of Bangarra, with their repertoire created on Country and stories gathered from respected community Elders. It's this inherent connection to the land and people that makes them unique and enjoyed by audiences from remote Australian regional centres to New York.
Pure joy as you wake to the sunrise. Awe as you make it to the snowy peak. A sense of adventure as you motor across red plains. The relief of rejuvenation as you wade into an alpine stream. Connection as you taste native, fragrant leaves. A sense of belonging as you return to your favourite holiday house. Freedom as you dash into the waves. Discover the endless feelings a visit to NSW can inspire.
Destination NSW acknowledges and respects Aboriginal people as the state’s first people and nations and recognises Aboriginal people as the Traditional Owners and occupants of New South Wales land and water.
