Ochre Dance Company returns to BREC.
Kwongkan/ Sand is a cross-cultural dance-theatre work from Ochre Contemporary Dance Company (Australia) and Daksha Sheth Dance (India). In 2016 the ensemble was resident in Bunbury and presented Kaya.
Sand continues that investigation into how cultures can co-exist fruitfully and without fear. It combines traditional (and contemporary) Indigenous and Indian dance with music, comedy and circus. The performers transform into powerful dancer/deities who struggle with their godly powers and ancient wisdoms, trying to help make sense of our crazy modern world.
The production stars WA’s indigenous greats Trevor Jamieson and Ian Wilkes with India’s brilliant siblings Isha Sharvani and Tao Issaro.
