If you love contemporary dance, you won’t want to miss a performance of Blak at the iconic Sydney Opera House this June.

From Friday June 7 until Sunday June 22, this iconic Sydney landmark plays host to this incredible production, which was created under the guidance of artistic director Stephen Page and dancer/choreographer Daniel Riley McKinley.

The production, which is presented by the Bangarra Dance Theatre, also features music composed by David Page and fused with the electronic beats of Paul Mac for an unforgettable Australian soundscape that offers a true feast for the senses.

Combine this with the stunning set designs created under the leadership of Jacob Nash and you have the formula for a winning production.

Blak tells the stories of Indigenous Australia in a powerful, moving and energetic way – exploring issues including the business of men and women, as well as our universal and timeless need for spiritual connections. It has been hailed as a triumphant celebration of one of the oldest cultures in the world and offers an explosive, unforgettable experience.

The performance is suitable for audience aged 12 and up, and has received rave reviews from leading publications such as The Herald Sun and The Australian.

If you are keen to experience the magic and mystery of Blak for yourself, why not make a night of it and enjoy a beautiful dinner on Circular Quay before the performance or relax with a drink after the show?

There are plenty of brilliant restaurants in the area to choose from, ranging from three-course dining experiences to tapas and even dessert-only options.

Circular Quay is an easy walk from the Sydney CBD, and if you are travelling from further afield, it is also a major transport hub – trains, buses and ferries all make regular stops here.
