From Holland to Hanoi, Bangarra are a company in high demand across the globe for their powerful storytelling and spine-tingling contemporary dancing. Since inception in 1989, Bangarra have embarked on 25 successful international tours, spanning 27 countries and almost 70 cities: delighting audiences on almost every continent and proving that dance really is a universal language.

Bangarra’s three-city European tour will see the company perform a total of six shows in Copenhagen, Bonn and Berlin this October. 

Copenhagen will get to see Spirit, a mixed bill of Bangarra’s best repertoire; audiences in Bonn will see Spirit alongside Jasmin Sheppard’s powerful Macq; and Berlin will be treated to the awe-inspiring triple bill OUR land people stories, featuring Stephen Page’s Nyapanyapa, Sheppard’s Macq and Daniel Riley and Beau Dean Riley Smith’s kinship story Miyagan.

The tour will also include a range of activities designed to deepen local engagement and understanding of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander culture.

Bangarra’s Berlin showcase is part of the Australia now program, a year-long celebration of Australian culture in Germany. 

Bangarra’s 2017 international tour is supported by the Australian Government through the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade.
