On Country

'On Country' is a term used widely in Australia that indicates the various significant homelands of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples. These significant places have inspired stories, creatively retold by Bangarra.

In the context of Bangarra, the works that are created ‘on Country’ means that we have worked with the people and communities on the lands specific to the story being told.

These 'on Country' locations are the local areas of the communities with whom Bangarra has forged connections. They are the traditional homelands of Bangarra artists and alumni.
