Bangarra marks its fifth year in Vivid with a new dance film

Australia’s leading Indigenous dance company has made the Harbour Bridge’s southern pylon its Vivid home for the last few years, showing consistently beautiful and moving dance films. Last year Bangarra paid tribute to one of Australia’s most mythologised individuals from the days of first contact: Woollarawarre Bennelong. This year they step back in time to look at the relationship between Indigenous people and the land, long before colonisation in 'Dark Emu'. Expect stunning visuals from creators Jacob Nash and Stephen Page, with Bangarra’s dancers performing, painted with light.
