Bangarra Dance Theatre

Bangarra is an Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander organisation, and one of Australia's leading performing arts companies. They are widely acclaimed, nationally and around the world, for their powerful dancing, distinctive theatrical voice, and utterly unique soundscapes, music and design.

Led by Artistic Director Stephen Page, Bangarra's dance technique is forged from over 40,000 years of culture, infused with contemporary movement. 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.
