Bangarra Dance Theatre bring their Spirit & 31-year Repertoire to the Coast Direct from Sydney Festival
Bangarra Dance Theatre is Australia’s leading Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander performing arts company fusing Aboriginal culture with contemporary dance. Their show Spirit: A Retrospective comes direct from the Sydney Festival and features the full ensemble of 17 dancers, revisiting pieces from their 31-year repertoire.
The company formed in 1989 by graduates from NAISDA Dance College, which is now located here in the Mt Penang Gardens of the Central Coast. Their dance technique is forged from over 65,000 years of culture, embodied with contemporary movement.
Spirit invites audiences into treasured dance stories inspired by Country and respected community elders in the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities. Through dance Bangarra offer an important celebration of First Nations Peoples’ and their unbroken connection to the land.
Relationships with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities are at the heart of Bangarra, with a dedication to regional touring to allow audiences outside of capital cities the opportunity to experience their work. The Art House is similarly committed to the changing of cultural opportunities on the coast and working with vulnerable local communities to access the Arts.
Bangarra are a company rich in history and a must-see for all Australians in acknowledgement of First Nations’ heritage. Spirit comes to The Art House for two shows only in February.
