In 2016, a remarkable triple bill from one of Australia’s most loved ensembles. OUR land people stories is a new contemporary dance work showcasing the expressive talents of Bangarra and the rich stories of Australia’s cultural heritage.

Artistic Director Stephen Page tells the story of internationally acclaimed visual artist Nyapanyapa Yunupingu from North East Arnhem Land. This piece draws inspiration from her incredible life story and unique paintings.

Jasmin Sheppard’s unforgettable Macq (first performed in 2013 during Dance Clan 3) is brought to the main stage, exploring the 1816 March of Macquarie – a historical chapter that decimated Sydney’s Aboriginal community.
