Bangarra Dance Theatre


Bangarra Dance Theatre was established in 1989 as a dance company that embraces, celebrates and respects Australia's Indigenous people and their culture. Under the artistic direction of Stephen Page since 1991, Bangarra has emerged as Australia's only national premier Indigenous performing arts company.

Bangarra Dance Theatre is fuelled by the spirit, energy and inspiration derived from the culture, values and traditions of Indigenous Australians.

Bangarra is undertaking new initiatives to extend employment for Indigenous people through its artists-in-residence and traineeship program. The traineeship program identifies young Indigenous people with the talent and potential to join Bangarra in structured learning and skills development in the areas of performance, stage management, music, marketing and administration.

Qantas is the official airline partner of Bangarra Dance Theatre and Qantas will also support and promote Indigenous art and culture and development through their partnership with Bangarra Dance Theatre.
