Bangarra Dance Theatre: Bennelong
Presented by Bangarra Dance Theatre and Araluen Arts Centre
“a benchmark in Australian dance creativity” - The Sydney Morning Herald
After a triumphant national tour in 2017, a return sellout season at Adelaide Festival and six Helpmann Award wins, Bangarra take Bennelong to regional Australia in 2019.
Created by Artistic Director Stephen Page, Bennelong explores the life of one of history’s most iconic Aboriginal figures. Woollarawaree Bennelong was a senior man of the Eora, who led his community to survive a clash of cultures. Through striking dance language, soul-stirring soundscapes and exquisite design, Bangarra unpacks Bennelong’s legacy and its reverberation through contemporary Australian life.
On its premiere, Bennelong was acclaimed as “ravishingly beautiful” (The Australian), “utterly searing” (The Daily Telegraph) and “a benchmark in Australian dance creativity” (Sydney Morning Herald). Don’t miss your chance to experience this extraordinary work.
