Boomerang

Choreography:

Artistic Director:

Stephen Page

Premiered in 2005 at Arts Centre Melbourne

Caught between two worlds – one ancient, one modern – a family returns to their traditional land to rekindle the sacred wisdom of the past for future generations.

Inspired by the songs and stories of north-eastern Arnhem Land, Artistic Director Stephen Page combines exhilarating dance and stunning theatricality in Boomerang.

Boomerang captures the old and the new in powerful visions, revealing the impact of social poisons and the beauty of forgotten rituals.


Stephen Page comes closer than ever before to a unique Australian dance language
