In Spirit, Bangarra Dance Theatre presents breathtaking dance that draws from the best works of the company’s repertoire. An invitation to enter a magical world.

Layering past and present, Spirit interweaves contemporary dance with ancestral traditions and sacred Aboriginal cultural rituals. In seven dazzling stories told in movement, music and light, the piece explores the connection of Australia’s Indigenous peoples to territory and the land. The haunting soundscape envelops and drives the bodies of the 17 supple, energetic performers. Their visceral, athletic dance conjures the vast spaces of their homeland, with dizzying leaps, dynamic sequences and powerful movements. A journey to the heart of a dream world.

Tickets start at $30.00
