For the first time, Bangarra performed on the forecourt of the Sydney Opera House for a free outdoor gathering to celebrate their 25th Anniversary.
In a final celebration of its 25th anniversary, and as a gift to the people of the Eora nation, Bangarra presented a free outdoor performance on the forecourt of the Sydney Opera House on 30 November as part of Corroboree Sydney 2014.
From twilight, under the lights and sounds of Sydney Harbour this is a gathering that will take you back to Bangarra’s beginnings, starting with a special traditional Yolngu performance from North East Arnhem Land. Culminating in a spectacular dance experience by the Bangarra dancers presenting the company’s most iconic works, a variety of performances and guest appearances will take place. Emceed by the eloquent actress Deborah Mailman, the evening will include a short performance by the NSW Public School Aboriginal Dance Company mentored by Bangarra, and song stories by Christine Anu from her Stylin Up album accompanied by Torres Strait Islander dancers from Bangarra.
