About the show

Internationally acclaimed Bangarra Dance Theatre rekindles the Aboriginal culture of Australia through an original and breathtaking theatrical experience: Kinship by award-winning choreographer Stephen Page.

Kinship opens with Brolga, inspired by an ancient creation story. In north-east Arnhem Land a young girl ventures out before sunset to find herself on a brolga feeding ground. She is challenged by her clan and takes us on a sensual, mystical journey. Brolga draws us deep into the Aboriginal spirituality of the natural world.

Kinship continues with ID, asking important questions about identity and what it means to be Aboriginal in the 21st Century.

Kinship is part of NORPA’s Theatre For Schools program.
