Stephen Page comes closer than ever before to a unique Australian dance language
The Sunday Telegraph
The intensity and instinctiveness of the performers’ purpose is compelling, both en masse and in two striking solos
Courier Mail

Caught between two worlds – one ancient, one modern – a family returns to their traditional land to rekindle the sacred wisdom of the past for future generations.

Inspired by the songs and stories of north-eastern Arnhem Land, internationally renowned choreographer Stephen Page combines exhilarating dance and stunning theatricality in Bangarra Dance Theatre’s Boomerang.

Boomerang captures the old and the new in powerful visions, revealing the impact of social poisons and the beauty of forgotten rituals.
