Corroboree

Choreography:

Stephen Page

Artistic Director:

Stephen Page

Premiered in 2001 at Optus Playhouse, Brisbane

A rich visual feast and a return to the purity of dance and tradition, Stephen Page’s triple bill Corroboree embraces the Dreamtime, a time when animal spirits occupied the land without the influence of humans.

Corroboree takes a journey through the songlines of three dreamings that are central to the lives of indigenous people: Brolga, Roo and Turtle.

Quietly political and evocative, Corroboree strives to bring attention to the origins of life.


Modern dance with a sense of self-reliance is rare enough, and modern dance informed by a sense of mission seems almost miraculous
