Bangarra Dance Theatre make their fourth visit to Japan to perform as the centrepiece and concluding highlight of the Australian government’s Australia now program.
The company adapts a tailored approach with each international tour, choosing to present distinct works in each country. Audiences in Japan will see Spirit 2018, a powerful collection of dance stories from Bangarra’s best repertoire, alongside Waangenga Blanco and Deborah Brown’s I.B.I.S., a colourful depiction and celebration of island life in the Torres Strait Islands.
Relationships with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities are the heart of Bangarra Dance Theatre, with its repertoire created on stories gathered from respected community elders. Bangarra is committed to deepening international engagement and global understanding of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander culture, with cultural exchange firmly at the heart of its practice.
