Bangarra Dance Theatre
Come, come with us to Kati Thanda – Lake Eyre. Where the cracked salt blinds and the silence deafens. Where the long shadows sweep towards the horizon, waiting for the deluge.
Come with us to Country.
Bangarra’s award-winning Terrain returns for a 10th Anniversary Tour of Australia in 2022.
Choreographed by Frances Rings, Terrain is a breathtaking exploration of our largest salt lake. The nine-part performance evokes the power of body and land converging to bring spirit to place.
Stand with us and feel the ancestral ties that bind people to Country: a rich cultural spine stretching through the generations. Watch the waters rise and fall as we reconnect with the energy of land and the resilient spirit of the people who care for its future.
Featuring David Page’s irrepressible score, Terrain is an iconic work. The textures of Kati Thanda take shape in Jacob Nash’s sets, Jennifer Irwin’s costumes and lighting by Karen Norris. As Cultural Consultant, Arabunna Elder Reginald Dodd shared with Bangarra his role in caring for the land, waters and precious cultural resources of the region.
