ONES COUNTRY – the spine of our stories
Djakapurra Munyarryun, Elma Kris, Nicola Sabatino and Kaine Sultan-Babij
World premiere at Carriageworks, Sydney in November 2017
The backbone of Bangarra is our unique ability to carry the power of Australia’s first cultures in breathtaking dance works, blending the old with the new while embracing the diversity and strength of its people. Our brand-new work, created especially for Carriageworks’ 2017 season, is no exception.
This triple bill, commissioned and directed by Artistic Director Stephen Page, will bring together the choreographic talents of Djakapurra Munyarryun, Elma Kris, Nicola Sabatino and Kaine Sultan-Babij.
Together they will take audiences across Australia, from North East Arnhem Land’s red dust, to the waters of the Torres Strait Islands – home of the salt-water creature, the Dugong – to Indigenous urban life looking at gender challenges and the human spirit. This will be the second time the company has performed in this industrial, multi-arts space of Carriageworks, Sydney.
