Internationally acclaimed Bangarra Dance Theatre presents a fusion of contemporary dance and storytelling commissioned by artistic director Stephen Page.

The timeless wonder and spiritual resonance of Lake Eyre

Described as a hymn to country, Terrain transports us to Lake Eyre the place of Australia’s inland sea: one of the few untouched natural waterways in the world. Bangarra explores the relationship of Indigenous people to country and how landscape becomes a second skin.

The award-winning Aboriginal artists: choreographer Frances Rings, composer David Page and set designer Jacob Nash create a powerful and evocative production inspired by the timeless beauty of Lake Eyre.

Beyond the ancient vastness we travel through drought and deluge, we witness the ephemeral transformation of place where nature delivers in abundance, promises all but guarantees nothing.
