Presented by Albany Entertainment Centre

Bangarra Dance Theatre is acclaimed worldwide for its authentic storytelling, distinctive voice and moving performances.

In 2020, the company returns to Albany with Bennelong, a new full-length work by Artistic Director Stephen Page.

Woollarawarre Bennelong was a senior man of the Eora, from the Port Jackson area in Sydney. With extraordinary curiosity and diplomacy, Bennelong led his community to survive a clash of cultures, and left a legacy that reverberates through contemporary life.

Bennelong is Bangarra at its best. In a unique Australian dance language, the company celebrates the continuation of life and culture through the power, artistry and passion of the country’s most outstanding dancers. With its immersive soundscapes and exquisite design, Bennelong will leave you in awe of Australia’s history – and its power to repeat.

“Ravishingly beautiful and deeply unsettling all at once.” - The Australian

“Bangarra fires on all cylinders in seminal tale of first contact… Dauntingly iconic, profoundly sad, Bennelong is beautifully realised” - Limelight Magazine ★★★★½

“Utterly searing… Moments of sheer brilliance flash and spark all the way through” - The Daily Telegraph ★★★★

“Hits hard... one of the most poignant and shocking endings I’ve seen in dance” - The Guardian ★★★★
