Today we proudly announce the appointment of Kokatha woman, Frances Rings as the company’s incoming Artistic Director. Rings will take on the role as Stephen Page announces that he will step down as Bangarra Artistic Director in early 2023.
“Frances Caroline Rings has been my sister and my inspiration, the shoulder I have cried on in times of great grief, and the funniest, most beautiful, sincere spirit with whom I have celebrated many of the fondest memories and milestones of my life. Today she has been announced as the inheritor of Bangarra, a company she has been part of since the first days that David, Russell, I (and so many others) dared to dream of a dance theatre company dedicated full time to stories drawn from First Nations all around Australia,” – Stephen Page.
