dance stories of land and sea
Deeply moving performances and authentic storytelling presented on stage by some of Australia’s best dancers are at the heart of lore – Bangarra’s brand-new work touring nationally in 2015.
Artistic Director Stephen Page brings together three powerful and passionate Bangarra artists to choreograph this double-bill: award-winning Frances Rings is joined by emerging choreographic voices Deborah Brown and Waangenga Blanco.
From the enigmatic waters of the Torres Strait Islands to the deeply rooted inland trees in Australia, the trio draw a realistic portrayal of life for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people. In these heartfelt dance works, they explore themes of identity, inequality, climate change and sustainability with a hopeful and positive outlook for the future.
lore showcases Bangarra’s unique contemporary dance form with its compelling Australian storytelling expression – an unforgettable night at the theatre.
