Compelling contemporary dance, soul-stirring soundscapes and uniquely Australian stories – Bangarra is a company at the peak of its powers. In superb form after the sold-out season of Bennelong, Bangarra Dance Theatre returns with a major new dance work, Dark Emu.

Inspired by Bruce Pascoe’s award-winning book of the same name, Dark Emu explores the vital life force of flora and fauna in a series of dance stories directed by Stephen Page.

With long-time Bangarra collaborators Steve Francis (music), Jacob Nash (sets), Jennifer Irwin (costumes), bringing their impeccable aesthetic to the production, Dark Emu will satisfy your spirit and connect you to Country.

Bangarra is an Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander organisation and one of Australia’s leading performing arts companies, widely acclaimed nationally and around the world for powerful dancing, distinctive theatrical voice and utterly unique soundscapes, music and design.

Dark Emu premieres in Sydney on 14 June, before travelling to Canberra, Perth, Brisbane, and finishing in Melbourne in September.
Location:
Sydney Opera House, Bennelong Point, Sydney
