In 2017, Bangarra presents a new contemporary dance work, choreographed by Artistic Director Stephen Page. Inspired by true events, Bennelong will leave you in awe of Australia’s history.

Woollarawarre Bennelong was a senior man of the Eora, from the Port Jackson area in Sydney. In a tumultuous time of Australia’s history, Bennelong and his community left us with a legacy that transcended ‘first contact’.

This brand-new work is Bangarra at its best. In a unique Australian dance language, the company embraces history – celebrating the continuation of life and culture with the power, artistry, passion and physicality of the country’s most acclaimed dancers.
