At Bangarra we work to create Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander experiences that promote awareness and understanding of our cultures to influence societal change.
By telling our stories on stage, we speak out against the wrongs of the past and acts of wrong-doing that continue today.
We denounce injustice both here and abroad and respectfully support all artists and their rightful decision to stand for what they believe in. However, we do not wish to diminish the strength of our voice, but will use our voice on stage as a powerful messenger.
We have a responsibility to tell Wudjang: Not the Past, a Yugambeh story of overcoming injustice by speaking our truth. The way forward, the way that Wudjang teaches, is to own and speak our truths together.
