Always original and evocative, Bangarra Dance Theatre presents two works inspired by old and new customs in a theatrical fusion of dance and visual art.
Commissioned by Bangarra’s Artistic Director Stephen Page, of earth & sky features the work of celebrated choreographer Frances Rings and Daniel Riley McKinley in his choreographic debut.
Artefact by Frances Rings breathes life back into Aboriginal objects that represent the continuum of practices that date back thousands of years. Riley by Daniel Riley McKinley celebrates the life and work of the late Michael Riley, an acclaimed Aboriginal photographer and fi lmmaker, related to Daniel through Wiradjuri culture.
In his debut with Bangarra, Aboriginal artist Jacob Nash has created inspiring designs that enhance the
sensory experience in of earth & sky. At the heart of Bangarra’s work is the inimitable soundscape and musical creativity of David Page, one of Australia’s most outstanding Aboriginal composers.
