OUR land people stories

OUR land people stories is Bangarra’s new contemporary dance work showcasing the endless choreographic talents of the company and the infinite stories of Australia’s cultural heritage.

Artistic Director Stephen Page tells the story of internationally acclaimed visual artist Nyapanyapa Yunupingu from North East Arnhem Land. This piece draws inspiration from her incredible life story and paintings.

Jasmin Sheppard’s Macq (first performed in 2013 during Dance Clan 3) is brought to the main stage, exploring the 1816 March of Macquarie – a historical chapter that decimated Sydney’s Aboriginal community.

Daniel Riley and Beau Dean Riley Smith create Miyagan, a poignant dance story mapping their cultural heritage in a discovery of their family background on Wiradjuri country in New South Wales.

The dancers’ artistry, athleticism and authenticity drive the company’s reputation as one of Australia’s most loved ensembles. Join them in 2016 as they pass their message stick on to you.
