Lake Eyre (Kati Thanda) – the place of Australia’s inland sea: one of the few untouched natural waterways in the world. Time simply does not exist. Day is measured by the length of shadows, a month by the level of salt crust on the surface, years by the rise and fall of the water.
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.
A powerful fusion of contemporary dance and storytelling, Terrain takes the audience on a journey through drought and deluge where nature delivers in abundance, promises all but guarantees nothing.
In 2016 Bangarra brings this work back to the stage, exploring the relationship of Indigenous people to Country and how landscape becomes a second skin.
Bangarra is one of Australia’s leading performing arts organisations with a unique dance technique forged from over 40,000 years of culture, infused with contemporary movement.
After the hugely popular Mathinna in 2010, Bangarra returns to Riverside with the power of its 17-member dance ensemble in this spectacular and meaningful work.
“Breathtaking…even mind-blowing…” – The Australian
“…Visually spectacular, captivating the audience.” – Time Out
