Glasshouse Port Macquarie and Bangarra Dance Theatre presents
After a triumphant national tour in 2017, a sell-out return season at Adelaide Festival, 7 Helpmann Awards wins and a successful regional tour in 2019, Bangarra returns to regional Australia with Bennelong.
Created by Artistic Director Stephen Page, Bennelong explores the life of one of history’s most iconic Aboriginal figures. Woollarawarre Bennelong was a senior man of the Eora, who led his community to survive a clash of cultures. Through striking dance language, soul-stirring soundscapes and exquisite design, Bangarra unpacks Bennelong’s legacy and its reverberation through contemporary Australian life..
