A HYMN TO COUNTRY THROUGH CONTEMPORARY DANCE
Terrain transports us to Lake Eyre, the place of Australia’s inland sea: one of the few untouched natural waterways in the world.
After its world premiere season in 2012, Terrain went on to win two Helpmann Awards for Best Ballet/Dance Work and Best Female Dancer in a Dance or Physical Theatre Work for dancer Deborah Brown.
In 2016, Terrain was remounted and opened to 5 star reviews, toured regional Western Australia and South Australia, and continues in Victoria and Tasmania in 2017. Terrain explores the relationship of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people to Country and how landscape becomes a second skin, inspired by the timeless beauty of Lake Eyre in South Australia.
Bangarra is one of Australia’s leading performing arts organisations with a unique dance technique forged from over 40,000 years of culture, infused with contemporary movement. Witness the power of its dance ensemble in this spectacular and meaningful work.
