* lore | Bangarra Dance Theatre *
Deeply moving performances, incredible dancing and authentic storytelling are the trademarks of any Bangarra Dance Theatre season, and none more so than the company's new double bill, lore. Following its recent world premiere in Sydney, Bangarra's lore will travel to Melbourne from 28 August - 5 September for ten shows at Arts Centre Melbourne; the company's 15th season in residence. Curated by Artistic Director Stephen Page, lore features two brand-new works featuring three choreographers. The trio have drawn from their own stories and experiences to create these personal and heartfelt works, with themes of community, identity, inequality and sustainability. Acclaimed choreographer Frances Rings returns to the mainstage with Sheoak, a testimony to the challenges facing Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities today. A Sheoak, also known as The Grandmother Tree is a symbol of shelter, medicine and protection. By lore it was a refuge, a portrait of hope, while the tree itself stands as a true witness to the changing lives of each new generation and a testimony to their birthright. Complementing this piece is I.B.I.S, created jointly by crowd-pleasing Bangarra dancers Waangenga (pronounced Wawn-nee-ga) Blanco and Deborah Brown. Depicting colourful island life in their home, the Torres Strait Islands, this is the first live dance theatre work for the main stage by either dancer. Embarking on a discovery of Australia's tropical islands, I.B.I.S is a celebration of the resilience and optimism of the Torres Strait Islander people. At once compelling and profound, lore will be an unforgettable night of dance.
