Bangarra Dance Theatre breaks the silence with an exciting, physically dynamic production Blak; exploding with stories about a contemporary clan and the collision of two worlds.
Artistic Director Stephen Page and dancer/choreographer Daniel Riley peel back the layers, crossing the worlds of old and modern, exposing our universal yearning for spiritual connection. Bangarra invites you to experience Blak and celebrate the world’s oldest living culture.
For the first time, the soundscape of award-winning composer David Page will be fused with the electronic sounds of Paul Mac, both legends in cutting edge Australian music. Jacob Nash’s sensational set designs will again bring depth and mood to Bangarra’s evocative theatrical journey.
Blak is physical and edgy, drawn from the artists’ urban perspectives, telling the stories of Indigenous Australia, in powerful and moving dance theatre.
