Bangarra is thrilled to return to the Sydney Opera House in 2022 with an iconic double-bill featuring SandSong: Stories from the Great Sandy Desert and the 10th anniversary tour of Terrain.
Terrain is a breathtaking exploration of Australia's largest salt lake, Kati Thanda-Lake Eyre. The award-winning nine-part performance, choreographed by Frances Rings, evokes the power of body and land converging to bring spirit to place.
“I am excited and thrilled to return a new season of Terrain to our audiences. The inspiration for Terrain is as enduring today as it was when it was created 10 years ago. I look forward to staging Terrain on a new generation of young artists and share the rich Cultural and geographical wonder that is Kati Thanda,” (Bangarra Associate Artistic Director, Frances Rings).
SandSong: Stories from the Great Sandy Desert, inspired by the Land and People of the Kimberley and Great Sandy Desert regions of Western Australia, tells a unique story of Place and the survival of its People. After an extraordinary effort to tour this production in 2021, Bangarra is grateful to finally share this resilient story with audiences once again.
“SandSong is a glimpse into the world of the Walmajarri people from the Great Sandy Desert and their inspirational story of survival as they overcome adversity to defend their land, identity and Cultural rights,” (Bangarra Artistic Director, Stephen Page, and Associate Artistic Director, Frances Rings).
