Watch the story of Bennelong the man as it's projected onto the Sydney Harbour Bridge

Bangarra Dance Theatre has created a Vivid Light art installation that honours one of Australia’s most mythologised and celebrated individuals from the days of first contact: Woollarawarre Bennelong. See the story of his life as it's depicted in contemporary movement and projected on the southern pylon of the Harbour Bridge. Artistic director Stephen Page and head of design Jacob Nash have created a work that shows Bennelong's audacious personality and important story as the first Indigenous author, and one of the first Aboriginal people to have their life story recorded and documented by Western writers.
