火種舞蹈團(澳洲)舞宴 Corroboree Bangarra dance theatre (Australia)
In a World where things are falling apart Where urban warriors has lost grip with Fire from the inside In a Myriad of worlds Where Complexities and Integrity can join hands......

Stephen Page
Artistic Director of Bangarra Dance Theatre
"It's reawakening how indigenous culture, songs and inspirations, icons and myths were inspiring to mainstream western society".

 

Ever since Stephen Page, the Artistic Director of Adelaide Festival 2004, directed the indigenous segment of the Opening and Closing ceremonies of the 2000 Sydney Olympic Games, Bangarra Dance Theatre signifies something not just aboriginal, but something that blends the new and the old. Their performances have been making important marks on modern Australian cultural identity, entwined with spirituality and philosophy brought about from 40,000 years of living traditions. Corroboree promises to be a modern dance filled with striking theatrical images, spelling out a mission of feverish intensity. A dance critic hailed it as a "work resonated far beyond the normal reach of dance". Absolutely an evocative journey not to be missed!
