Terrain transports us to Lake Eyre in South Australia, the place of Australia’s inland sea: one of the few untouched natural waterways in the world. Choreographer Frances Rings explores the fundamental connection between Aboriginal people and land - how our land looks after us, how we connect with its spirit, and how we regard its future.

After its world premiere season in 2012, Terrain went on to win two Helpmann Awards for Best Ballet/Dance Work and Best Female Dancer in a Dance or Physical Theatre Work for former senior Bangarra Dancer Deborah Brown. In 2016, Terrain was remounted and opened to 5 star reviews, toured regional Western Australia and South Australia, and continued in Victoria and Tasmania in 2017. 

Terrain explores the relationship of Indigenous people to country and how landscape becomes a second skin, inspired by the timeless beauty of Lake Eyre in South Australia.

If you haven't had the chance to experience the power and beauty of Terrain on stage, this is a unique opportunity to stream the production from the comfort of your own home.
