Bennelong

ARTISTRY, PASSION AND PHYSICALITY

In 2017, Bangarra presents a brand new contemporary dance work that will leave you astonished by Australia’s history, choreographed by Artistic Director Stephen Page.

Woollarawarre Bennelong was a senior man of the Eora, from the Port Jackson area in Sydney. In a tumultuous time of Australia’s history, Bennelong and his community left us with a legacy that transcended ‘first contact’.

Inspired by true events, this theatrical dance work highlights the extraordinary curiosity and diplomacy that led an Aboriginal community to survive a clash of cultures, contributing to the establishment of positive relationships between the Eora and the British, for a serene future.

This brand new work is Bangarra at its best. In a unique Australian dance language, the company embraces history – celebrating the continuation of life and culture with the power, artistry, passion and physicality of the country’s most acclaimed dancers.

“In no other company’s work are past and present so potently, inextricably intertwined” – The Australian
