An interview with the choreographer of Terrain, talking about the inspirations behind the dances.


 

This year the acclaimed Bangarra Dance Theatre celebrates its 30th anniversary and to commemorate that will embark on its biggest ever national tour. It's a significant achievement for the family-led company that lost its much-loved music director David Page in 2016. His brother, Artistic Director Stephen Page, leads the way telling indigenous stories through dance, and tonight he's joined by his son, Hunter Page-Lochard, in the latest instalment of It Takes Two.


 

Bangarra Dance Theatre has redefined how the world thinks about Indigenous dance. The brothers behind it, director Stephen Page and music composer David Page, have dedicated their lives to depicting the world’s oldest living culture in new ways.
