At the Vancouver Playhouse
DanceHouse presents Bangarra Dance Theatre in Spirit
Drawn from 65,000 years of culture, Australia’s Bangarra Dance Theatre presents foundational work, seemingly pulled from the very land itself. In their first visit to Vancouver, Bangarra brings a selection of their extraordinary 30-year repertoire that weaves together totemic storytelling, performance and rich musical scores.
A key part of the resurgence of Indigenous dance making, the company is committed to sharing the cultural heritage of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people with audiences around the world. Tracing an unbroken song-line, Spirit gives voice to a cosmos of plants, animals, and ancestral medicine, laid down one step at a time. Dance becomes a form of ceremony and celebration between the people, the land, and creation itself.
