Dark Emu - Queensland

Dark Emu

South Brisbane, Brisbane Area

24 – 25 August 2018 - 

Compelling contemporary dance, soul-stirring soundscapes and uniquely Australian stories—Bangarra is a company at the peak of its powers. In superb form after its near sold-out season of Bennelong in 2017, Bangarra Dance Theatre returns in 2018 with a major new dance work, Dark Emu.

Inspired by Bruce Pascoe’s award-winning book of the same name, Dark Emu explores the vital life force of flora and fauna in a series of dance stories directed by the acclaimed Stephen Page. With long-time Bangarra collaborators Steve Francis (music), Jacob Nash (sets) and Jennifer Irwin (costumes) bringing their impeccable aesthetic to the production, Dark Emu will satisfy your spirit and connect you to Country.

Bangarra is known for its world-class dancing, atmospheric music and ravishingly beautiful set and costume design. Don’t miss your chance to experience them in 2018.
