Community Performances

Community Nights

Bangarra’s national Community Nights program is generously supported by The Balnaves Foundation. Community Nights are dedicated performances for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people and our way of connecting with those who share the culture and history sewn through our storytelling.

For Neil Balnaves, founder of The Balnaves Foundation, supporting Bangarra’s vision was important to the Foundation’s aim of creating a better Australia.

"The Balnaves Foundation is proud to support Bangarra's commitment to ensuring that their inspiring, authentic and positive work is accessible to all. Through a series of special performances for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities, we hope to respect and honour the community relationships that are the foundation blocks of Bangarra."

Wilay Tickets

Bangarra’s Wilay tickets enable Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander school students to access a matinee performance at a discounted price of $10 each. The performance is often followed by a Q&A with some of the dancers and creatives.

“Wilay" is the Wiradjuri word for Brushtail Possum, given to us by Uncle Stan Grant Senior. (This initiative was formerly known as Koori(e) Kids’ Day).

This is one of the ways of giving back to the communities that inspire us.
