Event description

Ausdance ACT in partnership with Arts Capital and the Canberra Theatre Centre, is delighted to present a Masterclass with Bangarra Dance Theatre.

While in Canberra, Bangarra is committed to engaging with the community beyond the performance by holding a beautiful contemporary dance workshop inspired by the Company's newest work Horizon, on at the Canberra Theatre the 18-20 July.

This session focuses on exploring cultural elements of dance in a contemporary setting. The workshop is open to pre-professionals 14 years plus, independent dance artists, dance teachers and adult dancers with an intermediate to advanced level in contemporary dance.

The workshop is facilitated by four of the company members, who share the rich culture and history that is sewn through their storytelling. Join Bradley Smith, Kiarn Doyle, Emily Flannery, Lucy May to experience the magic!

From two of the world’s great First Nations comes a brand-new work: Horizon. Some call it a feeling; some call it the mother spirit. It’s the place where sea meets sky, the horizon we all look to, the compass that guides us home.  

In their first main-stage cross-cultural collaboration, leading Māori choreographer and Arts Laureate Moss Te Ururangi Patterson joins beloved Bangarra alumna Deborah Brown. Together they guide the award-winning ensemble in stories that honour their mother countries and the spirit that calls them home.

In Horizon, there is a place between sea and sky — a sacred realm, where the sun rises and falls, and the light is new.
