SandSong

Tue 5 December 2023, at 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm

Under the vast Kimberley sky, the red pindan dust stretches across the desert homelands of the Walmajarri, where the ancient knowledge of People and of Country is preserved through Songlines that have endured for hundreds of generations.

SandSong tells the unique story of this place and the survival of its people.

Between the 1920s and 1960s, Aboriginal people were removed off their Country and forced into hard labour for no wages and only minimal rations.

Despite this displacement and cultural disruption, the people of the Western Desert have maintained unbroken connection to their Land, keeping stories and kinship strong.

We are proud to offer Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Community members, and those who work alongside First Nations peoples, access to $15 Community priced tickets. Community ticketing initiatives provide Bangarra with a way to connect with those who share the rich culture and history that is sewn through their storytelling. Community ticketing to Bangarra Dance Theatre performances is made possible through the generous support of The Balnaves Foundation.
