An evening of two works by Australia’s Bangarra Dance Theatre, Belong, opened in Brisbane July 1st and will head to Sydney July 20th as it continues a national tour:

Belong features two new dance theatre works: ID by Artistic Director, Stephen Page and About by Elma Kris, choreographer and dancer with Bangarra.”

“Stephen Page investigates what it means to be Aboriginal in the 21st century, asking important questions of identity. Based on personal observations of people tracing their bloodlines and re-connecting with traditional culture, ID provokes perceptions in contemporary society.”

“Torres Strait Islander Elma Kris is inspired by customs passed down through families for generations. Reflecting the strong links between communities and their natural environment, About explores the mood of the winds as they move across land, sea and sky signifying key moments in time.”
